AGS System Reset

I just learned 2 - important things about my (2003) AGS System that others may want to know.

1. I started the genset automatically with the DuoTherm and then turned the genset off manually which is "out of normal sequence". The AGS Controller then displayed "Generator Fail" with a red light. The manual claims that pressing the "On/Off" button on the AGS Remote Panel to cycle it through the options and back to "Off" will clear it but mine didn't clear. I could still manually start & stop the genset but the failure wouldn't clear. The solution is to pull out the 18-pin white connector on the AGS Controller, leave it out for atleast 10 - minutes, and reconnect. It takes a few seconds for the system to initialize. NOTE: I also turned off the chassis & house power but I doubt that's necessary since the AGS System is powered directly to the house batteries.

2. Our dry camping in Albq required a quiet time between 10:30 PM & 5:30 AM. The AGS System only sets the hour NOT the minutes. Therefore, when you set the Local Time "hour" to 10 PM (for example) the actual minutes could be a value somewhere between 10:00 and 10:59 PM, and possibly violating the scheduled quiet time if greater than 10:30 PM. Once again the solution is to pull that 18-pin connector described above and reconnect it on the "0" minute of your current time.

Optionally, if you wanted the sytem to match a scheduled quiet time more perfectly (as when in Albq), you could reconnect the 18-pin connector at 9:30 PM and set the Local Time "hour" to 9 PM which actually makes the system "trigger" on the half hour (9:30, 10:30, 11:30, etc.). This procedure may be a little too complicated so using the exact hour as provided above should be sufficient and the Quiet Time settings for my Albq example would be 10 PM to 6 AM to meet the scheduled quiet time.

NOTE: The 18-pin connector uses a center clip that's immediately visible. You need to pinch the center clip to release it and pull out with light force. I plan to set mine to the exact hour and NEVER touch it again (until the house batteries hav eot be changed). It's also probably best to avoid repeated reconnecting of the connector as possible.
