If you replaced the batteries, and the +ve wire touched the body you will short out the batteries with possible battery death depending on how severe and for how long the short was. You should not have harmed the UPS unit at all, not even blown the fuses.

Hi, interesting question....
If you have access to a large enough solar system, then as long as there is sufficient power from the inverter, it will work as the UPS will consider it is being powered by a mains source.
The amount of power you will need from the SS will directly depend on how much load you have on your UPS.
Remember that you will need enough power from the SS to drive the
1) UPS electronics
2) UPS battery charger
3) Load items
Most cities have local recycling centers where you can drop off paper, plastic, etc. They usually have something set up for electrical components like VCRs and batteries. The PowerRite Plus was an old Deltec model. Deltec was acquired a few times and is now belongs to Eaton. If you are looking for a new UPS, you can participate in the UPSgrade program which includes recycling your old UPS: eaton.com/upsgrade.
According to the manual I have, that is a site wiring fault. It means that there is no ground on your AC line coming into the unit.
If you e-mail me, I will send you the pdf of the manual.
I have the same PCB on my Deltec PRR2200i. I at least know a few things about the circuit now. I had 11 transistors explode on mine and am replacing them now. Sadly I have not managed to track down a circuit diagram.
