    It's a 1/2/Both type, and it's set to 1.

      Well then, could you wire it so there is the 80 Amp fuse on the battery feeding the center of the switch, then have #1 go through the appropriate size fuse/breaker to the charge controller and #2 through the appropriate size fuse/breaker to the inverter? That way in OFF nothing is connected, in #1 the controller is hooked up, in #2 the inverter is hooked up, and BOTH would be normal operations.

      Possible?
      1220 Watts of PV, OB MX60, 232 Amp hrs, OB 3524, Honda eu2000.

      Ohm's Law: Amps = Volts / Ohms
      Power Formula: Watts = Volts * Amps

        In looking at the battery switch wiring diagram, I think it would behave exactly as it is now. I'll probably just switch out my 60 amp breaker for a 30 or 40 amp version - that would be the easiest thing to do.
