I'm considering buying a Sterling B2B for my Tesla battery. Could you please elaborate on why not?

Nothing wrong with the sterling unit. I believe they have the charge parameters available. I chose the method I did so the inverter/charger was the main component other than the solar controller that pushed power into the modules.

Default My version

Last year I installed my version of a mini split. I used the LG 120 volt 1ton unit and installed the compressor under the van in place of the spare tire and place the indoor unit near the back doors.
