Generator hookup on Outback VFXR3524A
I have installed a VFXR3524A at my off-grid cabin. I also purchased the generator relay kit sold by Northern Arizona Wind and Sun. However, I can't find in any documentation where I'm supposed to install the relay (I'm sure it's there somewhere, but my unit didn;t come with any documentation so I've pulled all the manuals I can find online and have read through them dozens of times). I also can't figure out where the generator is supposed to wire up to. Right now I have it wired in to the AC Input and it does provide my cabin with power when I run it but it doesn't seem to charge my batteries. After a rough winter this year, my batteries are struggling to get a full charge (it also doesn't help that the last time I snow shoed in to my cabin this winter, I accidentally turned off my panels and left the inverter on I meant to turn the inverter off and leave the panels on). So I'm hoping to finally hook-up my generator the correct way and let it help keep my batteries happy until I can start to get some good sun up there.
Anyways, any advice or documentation you can point me to on where to install the relay and where I should wire the generator in to? I've read the documentation on configuring my Mate 3 for generator, I think once I can get the physical connection part right, I can figure out the rest but I'm open to any guidance.
