I am storing my boat on the hard
season in Martinique
. I have four 140w solar panels
connected to four Victron MPPT
75/15 controllers, and 4 Lifeline GPL 8DA AGM
255 AH batteries
routed through a Magnum MS2812 Inverter/Charger. I would like to determine the optimum storage
practice for this system.
: Leave the system as is. Charger
will float charge at 13.1v for 4 hours, then go to full charge mode doing nothing until battery
drops to 12.7v, then returning to float.
Disconnect 2 solar panels
leaving 280 w which is plenty of power to keep batteries
charged. Not sure if this reduces any risk or is worth doing.
Previous owner kept freezer
running on low as a power draw. I am not sure of the reason for this, or if it is necessary. I would think it would be better to keep a fan running for air circulation if anything.
I will have the boat
checked on a regular basis to make sure system is operating properly. Any comments or suggestions appreciated.
