Then that's your answer, isn't it?

Re: Victron 12/2000/80

No Dockhead - that in fact is my question - why only 75% and how do I turn it up to 80amps?

That's Victron's wacky idea about the best use of their gear. To turn it up to full capacity, flip the dip switches according to the instructions in the manual. As others have said, better to program it by PC, but it can be done with DIP switches (I'm here to tell).

Being out here in the middle of nowhere Exumas so unfortunately not able to go in local electronics store to pick-up piece to interface with my laptop. Not totally sure how the dip switches work exactly. I set ds -2 and 3 to off-on which should be 14.7. Then I took reading at the dc out cables on on Victron and got 13.2v and only 46.5amps. The Blue Sky read the same 13.2 but up to 65amps, which might be the solar to boot (at almost high noon).

Sorry, meant ds-3 and ds-4 dips
