manual is pretty specific on the mechanics of programming and updating the 614 voltage regulator
. However, there are a lot of settings and its my understanding that the default settings are not optimal and I am looking for different processes and strategies for doing so.
For example, are the optimal settings different based on how much you motor
vs. how much you sail? What about taking alt size into account? How to determine if your engine
is suffering because you alt is too large? And so on.
So, what is the process of optimizing the 614 so we are optimally charging
the batteries? I know you need to take into account battery
bank size voltage drop, alt size, etc...
I'm particularly interested in deregulating the alternator
to extend its life (we have the balmar
Guidance would be appreciated.
