Is the little black box defective or is there something else I can try. Both battery banks read about 12.5 volts after sitting overnight.
I'm not so sure of the reason for that "delay"? I might consider defeating that "feature" myself.
For this conversation though, that box is getting a signal from somewhere, telling it to close that relay. Then, on the loss of that signal, it should eventually stop powering the relay. So what I'm wondering, is what is telling that box to close the relay? Where is it getting the signal to do that? Is that signal source working as it should?
In other words, is the problem in the box that has the solenoid wire on it, or could it be further upstream?
