OK I've read all the various posts about, types, cycles, bank sizes and all that. Lots of technical design stuff, but not really any real numbers. You would get the impression from some of the posts that batteries while cruising would only last a year, but that of course can't be the norm. So for those who have cruised and been off the grid the only real question is:
How long did your batteries last????? And if possible add what type you had, total bank size, and the avg daily net load (load on batteries less any "passive" charging
from solar/wind etc).
The hope on this post isn't to restart any of the "cycles" or "design" threads, it is to just give info on how long your given baterries lasted in their given use.
