Installed 38kw
Tested 120v to battery for charging
Battery not being charged
Replaced Controller
Replaced battery 3 times
If put a trickle (stand only) battery charges and everything good
Just stumped why battery not getting charged.
Tech support walked me through steps and said controller but that is not it

Any suggestions

Does the controller say 'Charger Status: Not Charging' in the dealer menu?

We installed a 25kw a few years ago that would not charge the battery, had 120 vac into the unit on the T1 circuit but it wasn't getting to the control, found a bad pin or socket in the harness connector. Repaired the connector and it's been trouble free since.
