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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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?

I’m sorry to hear you’re having issues
What you describe is not an issue I’ve come across before, so I’ve passed this information to our platforms team. They’ll be able to analyse the data we’ve received from the charger during the times of the incidents, which should give us a better understanding of what the issue is.
We’ll respond to your email once we have an update for you and it may be best to leave the unit isolated in the mean time, just to be on the safe side. For anyone with a similar issue, please do the same, and email us on: email@example.com,
