First of all, 46ft sailboat in Puget Sound
. Use the boat as a summer home, so mostly live aboard, with maybe a few weeks of cruising. Biggest draw is a really stupid reefer system, AC dan foss compressor
freezing two holding plates. So this runs off the Freedom 20 inverter
Right now have 6 6v golf carts that are stupid old, like 12 yrs. Yesterday I went to see John at Dyno battery
. I asked about just replacing the golf carts or going up to L16's. John was suggesting that their 2v cells might be a good choice.
So the 6v's are hooked in series and parallel which spits out 12 volt at the end. Of course there are lots of cables
and connections. So the system has worked well, but I have always had to add a lot of water
even with the red battery
saver caps. John thought that the float voltage was too high. Looking at the link 2000 right now it shows float voltage at 13.5V
So the question is, how to bring the float voltage down via the freedom20 and link 2000?
When I do buy new batts should I go ahead and spring for the 2V cells ($226) each which would be 700 a/h. Really clean installation
all bolted up, and heavy duty construction. For ($277) I could bump it up to 1000 a/h
I forgot to ask about how much for the GC145's and L16's.
After spending all this cash for Batts, any thoughts on the old Freedom 20/ link 2000 set up?
