Solar controller reset

Hello All - sorry for the long post...

We have a '22 Verona VBH with the factory installed three solar panels, three AGM batteries, Jaboni 30 amp MPPT controller, and solar control via the Firefly interface.

We parked our RV at a friends place while a new pad for parking the RV was poured. We shut down the coach and turned off the power switch for the coach. Brought the RV back home yesterday, a bright, sunny day, and had no solar charging per the Firefly panel.

The Firefly panel for solar showed Status - Not Charging and the Controller - Standby. We weren't plugged into power, the engine was off, and the generator was off. We should have been getting plenty from the solar. The documentation that came with the RV has no info regarding using the Firefly to control the solar and the Jaboni info is for units with their control panel.

When checking the Jaboni controller, the blue LED was blinking slowly. The Jaboni info did say a blinking LED meant it was in standby but no explanation of how or why. I reset the controller using the reset button and the LED went off and then stayed lit. The Firefly now showed solar charging going on like it should.

So after all this related info - why did the controller go into standby and need reset? Any thoughts?

I have a 2022 Classic and the darn Jaboni controller gives the slow blue flashing of death at least once a week if not more often. I just have to hit the reset button. I really want to upgrade to Victron, but I am not sure how to have it integrate with the Firefly. I am only guessing it will crap out sooner or later and I will be forced to upgrade.
