If you purchased a forest River product that has the Solar/Inverter option your coach will include a Go Power GP-PWM-30-UI Solar controller. Owners manual shows A/C Button on left side of controller and in top of APP should turn off & on inverter as desired. The solar/inverter option assembled by Forest River factory Doesn’t perform as indicated in owners manual. This is due to solar/inverter option is assembled with electrical components that are incompatible & don’t function as indicated in the owners manual. When Forest River started offering solar/inverter option Due Diligence was not achieved. Profits over fully functional electrical system were achieved. Unless coaches are delivered with two different controllers Including the one that comes with all the WFCO inverters mismatched to the Go Power solar. This is why factory chooses to leave out WFCO Remote.

I too, have had continuous issues with the solar system om my 2017 Sandstorm Toy hauler, by Forest River.

Go Power has replaced the wall mounted controller 2 times now under warranty, however, the unit continuously flashes, not charging the battery.

As your comment above states the reason, what is the fix?

Can a WFCO inverter be added to the system?

Thank you
