Link 10 Battery Monitor -Setting Battery Capacity

My Carver 390 is equiped with a Link 10 Barrery Monitor. I have a bank of three 8D house batteries. Each battey is rated at 220 amp hours. When setting battery capacity, do I use 220 amp hours or the total of all three batteries - 660 amp hours?

I'd use 660.

And welcome to CF!

You would set it for the total AH of the battery bank.

If the batteries are wired in parallel with the link 10 shunt on the paralleled black wire then use 660. To be certain what value to input, you really have to see what the shunt monitors.
