Sunsets, We have the exact same problem, but our equipment
is different. We have a Xantrex 2412 and tri-metric metering system, that shows amp-hours used voltage etc. We do not have the ability to change the charging
We have solar
and a generator
. When we get up in the morning the meter shows 150 amp-hours down, 80% full and 12.0 volts. We start the generator
and it cranks in 50+ amps for perhaps 15-20 minutes and then goes back to float mode charging at 20 amps, even though the amp-hours read 100 down, 85% full and 13.0 volts.
We have gone through all the basics of checking connections, water
etc and everything is good.
We tried equalizing this morning and it will not go into a consistent equalizing mode. It will pump
in 50 amps and then pull back to 20 amps, then 2-3 minutes later it will do the same thing. We read that we must be fully charged to do the equalization
process, but we would have to run the generator for the entire day to potentially get there.
Perhaps with two of us out here, someone can help us both find a solution
We are also in the VI in St Thomas. Where are you? If your in the area hail us (Dragonfly) on channel 16.
