Do you use a BMS system? What charger

I posted a link on page 1 of this thread that completely details my installation
, including chargers, batteries and BMS.
So far Im satisfied, and have no reason to believe I won't stay that way. We use a lot of power and the holy grail for us is cycle life which needs another 6 months or so of use at anchor
to draw any final conclusions.
A couple of side benefits, but not enough to justify the investment alone are saving a 2-4 generator
hours a week, mostly the weekly full charge we tried to accomplish with the previous lead acid bank to bring it to 100% SOC. The DC watermaker
makes 10-15% more per hour since the voltage is higher.
