Hi, first of all compliments, great site! Question: I have a newer model from Victron - and in mine I had to connect the PE from the input with the J34A connection. This enables the isolation as per manual - I made the connection longer as I can use this if the boat would be on land and needs a different connection to be safe. Since I cannot see either one of this connection may I ask why you not use this?
Cheers Marco

Hi Marco, I think that the jumper you mention must only be placed when the boat is out of the water. It connects shore ground to boat ground IIRC and this is exactly what you do NOT want with an isolation transformer.
Measure resistance between the ground pin on your shore-inlet (remove shore power cord) and the output ground of the transformer. There should be NO connection there.
