Well, we have evolution. I did another factory reset and went through setup process again and it's all working. Between my extension wire being shorted between conductors early on, a pushed pin on one connector, and operator error Big Grin , problem solved. Can't wait to see how much capacity I have now. Thanks for the help.

If your leads allow, you can move the comms cable to "jump over" one longmon.

I wired my longmon chain (total 64 longmons in 4x LiFePo4 battery banks) via a Cat6 data patch strip.
Each battery has a Cat6 cable running to it for the 16 longmons there.
I can swap the Cat6 cables positions to test any one battery to see if those 16 are working.
I have had a few fail & was able to quickly isolate to which battery & use the "jumper over" trick to locate within the 16.
 

@redpacket Your patch panel is interesting. Can you explain how or why it works..? It appears that all four banks terminate to the panel which would mean they are in parallel vs. being in series (how batrium illustrates hooking up multiple packs). Thanks!

The panel is made of individual Cat6 sockets as standard. They are not wired in parallel.
I've wired it at the back with solid core Cat6 cable pairs punched into place so that socket #9 (the watchmon) is looped into B1, back out & then into B2, then back out & into B3, then back out & into B4 & than back out to #9.
#11 is wired directly to #12 only for 1:1 testiing.
