Took me 4 days to get back on board. Two separate ammeters found zero load (yes I trend to obsessive compulsive). That felt good.
I synchronized the monitor
Sunday. At the time the batteries were about 85% full (reading 12.55v) Over the last 96 hours, if the phantom 0.5A draw were actual, there would have been a 48A draw off the bank (22%). The voltage should have dropped to 12.44. It never moved.
I phoned Victron and asked Justin if he had knowledge of their monitors going out the door with a 0.5A discrepancy. He said "it happens".
Now I'm looking forward to zeroing the display and moving on to the charge side of this project
. That should give me +30A per day and I can't wait to get started. It's going to be a good season. Thanks CF.
