The boat's on the hard
. Solar Panels
are up and we're having sunny days - so the batteries are constantly up at over 14.5V during the days - 100% charged.
I worry that this might do some over-charging of the batteries - am I right to worry about that?
Anyway, in order to bleed off a few amps to drop the over-charging potential, I figured I'd leave a small load going - nothing big - I chose to leave my Prosine Inverter
on - Standby. Should be a nice small inconspicuous load...
I left the boat for 10 days and came back to 12.0V, 500AH drawn, batteries down at 40% charge (1,000AH bank).
According to Xantrex, the Prosine
should only pull 0.5W in Standby (40-50mA) - so I'm guessing it's on the blink - or am I missing something - or misinterpreting the specifications?
