    For setting the dip switches, the wall connector came with both set to up and said this was the "normal" position. (I'm located in CA, USA - single phase power).

    They didn't specify what "normal" was, but with position 1 set to down its 240v line to line. Seems to work now with that first pin down, but I wonder, why is it set up like this and is the manual incorrect?

    I can see how that page is a little confusing. The normal setting is for Position 2 and UP is the only valid setting. Position 1 is for 240VAC L-L split phase vs. 277VAC L-N Wye.

    I think pivoting the table so that the Up/Down settings were on the rows and the DIP positions were on the columns would be less confusing.
