Default Re: Alternator not charging house batteries?

The "start isolation" is to command the BlueSea to *not* join the batteries during the crank-to-start period.

It avoids trying to draw too much current through the BlueSea.

Mein,

I had never heard of the Sky Roam Solis unit before. I do have a ZTE Z288L Hotspot, with service via Straight Talk prepaid cellular. It works wherever there is a Verizon signal, but the speed of data transmission varies greatly depending on location. I think the same would be true of any portable unit:none of them can be any faster than the speed the nearest cell tower is able to able to handle. Which seems to depend on the number of users who are trying to access that tower. For example, reception in campgrounds near busy highways or in busy resort areas has often been slower than the speed in fairly remote camps with few people around and a fairly weak cell signal.
