Newbie question, So sorry in advance… But we’re getting a 320 Boondock, with solar already installed… Will it have a controller already so I will be able to know how it’s working? I just did not see anything about the solar panel on the 1000 YouTube videos I have watched thus far!

Our battery is currently at 14.49 volts and the current of the battery is at 4.3 amps. The state is now in absorption.
Float should be at 13.8 volts and absorption is now at 14.5V. according to the settings, my battery shoukd have triggered to the float mode at a absorption voltage of 14.4V.
Are my settings correct with this setup? I worried that I might be overcharging my battery at this higher voltage.
The absorption voltage can be as high as 14.6V for LiFEPO4 batteries. I personally prefer 14.4V for battery longevity. I forget what the default value is for Victron. If you're Absorption is set to 14.5V and you're currently at 14.49V and it says the state is Absorption, you should be fine. I can't quite tell from your description.
@2WoodsyOnes, The battery should have over-voltage protection within the battery management system (BMS) to protect against a charger failure that tries to over-charge a LiFEPO4 battery, usually set at 14.8V or 14.9V.

Are you having problems with the phone app, or are you having problems with the controller?
