Our blocking diode failed and caused our fuse to blow. It would have been fine if it were not for the fuse not doing its job and severing the connection like it should have. Instead it blew and refused itself causing the circuit to overload the battery. The 200ah battery overheated and destroyed itself.  So we lost half our battery storage. We have 200ah worth of power now which is our bare minimum we need. We should be able to get new batteries this Friday. In a way it’s a good thing because e will be getting more battery power than we originally had now. We are going to change out all the batteries and get a larger bank. I will post pictures and a blog soon of the new battery bank. We didn’t get pictures of the blown fuse sorry. But here is a picture of the overload reading on our meter…
