Flashing green light in circuit breaker box?

During the night noticed a tiny green light flashing in our circuit box. What does it mean? Never saw it before.

Flashing green light in circuit breakers

Saw a tiny green light flashing inside our circuit breaker panel last night (in the dark). It is still flashing. What does it mean? Anything I need to do? We have a 323 Wildcat fifth wheel.

If you have a Progressive Dynamics power center, the green light is the Charge Wizard letting you know the rate of charge to your batteries.

Chascin is it supposed to blink all the time when I am plugged into 50 amp service? The electricity was out for 2 hours yesterday morning, so some battery was being used but still blinking today?
Doesnít the battery get fully charged?

From the Progressive Dynamics web site...

The charger board is equipped with an LED (Light Emitting Diode) that indicates the charging status as follows. (LED optional on some units)
Light “ON” all of the time – The battery is being charged.
Rapidly Flashing Light – The battery is approximately 90% charged.
Very Slow Flashing Light – When the light blinks approximately every 5-10 seconds, the battery is fully charged.

Progressive Dynamics Basic Operation

If the light is flashing 6-8 sec intervals the battery is fully charged and in maintenance mode. when the light is solid, the battery is being charged in Boost mode at 14.4 volts till it reaches 90%. Then the converter switches to normal mode, once per sec and is being charged at 13.6 volt. If you lookup Proressive Dynamics website you can download a manual that will explain this and tell you how you can change the charge rate.

Good. I was worried. Didn’t know the green LED was part of the EMS. I’m guessing by tomorrow the blinking should change. Many thanks for all your help!

The flashing light has nothing to do with your EMS other that letting you know your converter is getting 120v to charge your 12 v batteries. EMS checks and measures your incoming 120v power and amp usage by what you have running in your camper. this includes your converter that is charging you 12v dc batteries

Just so you know, Progressive Industries makes your EMS. Progressive Dynamics makes converters. Two separate companies.

Is your EMS portable or hardwired? If hardwired some have a remote that shows voltage and amp usage.

Mine is hardwired and does have a small box on the wall indicating volts and amps per line.
