80a GFDI tripping w/ 600w array

I have a Flexpower One with a VFXR 3524A Inverter/Charger and two PV arrays 2x300 and 2x280 in parallel. A week ago my 80a GFDI tripped on a sunny day. Today with one array online the GFDI trips immediately. Power coming was 26a. What is wrong?

Re: Low battery cutoff

I have 4-Trojan L16e-ac 6v batteries for a 24v bank with 370ah. I am off grid with generator backup and wanting to know a safe level to discharge them. Right now it is set to 21v default. I have 4 more batteries in route to increase my storage capability.

Low battery cutoff

Just installed 3.5 kw Flexpower 1 for my first system. What is a safe low voltage battery cutoff for 24v battery bank with 370ah. Thank you.
