My question is, is it safe to turn off the breakers for everything but the converter, inverter, and batteries? In order to stop parasitic draws.
Is it safe to just unplug the things that are drawing such as the fridge?
What is the best way to prevent these things from happening?
Why would you turn off the breakers, to save battery power?
Breakers are for 120v AC and have no affect on 12v DC power.
Now if your inverter is for a residential fridge, you have to leave the inverter on.
Have you tested your batteries, converter and solar outputs with a multimeter?
How big is your solar system?
