This is my first post to the Ovo Forums. I’ve had V2G since December last year and not had a major problem until now, apart from having to switch charger on and off four or five times.
I’ve sent an email to email@example.com, but what with Covid, don’t know when I’ll get a response, so thought I’d see if anyone else had a similar problem.
Got up this morning around 08:00, and the main house RCD had tripped. I reset the main house RCD and noticed the V2G charger RCD had also tripped which I reset.
I went to check the level of charge in the Leaf, and the car doors wouldn't unlock.
I switched on the V2G charger and the V2G RCD tripped again a few seconds later, but the car doors were able to unlock and I found it had 60% charge.
I unplugged the Leaf, reset the V2G RCD and was able to boot the charger but when I plugged in the car and tried to switch on charging, the V2G RCD tripped.
Looking at when the car was last charging, it would appear that it tripped around 08:00, when the battery was at 60%, to be at 80% by 10:00.
I switched across to the original Rolec charger (which I kept as backup when the V2G was installed) and plugged in the car. It was able to charge the car easily.
The V2G charger is now isolated.
Strike a chord with anyone?
