Hi Steve what "gage" is it, what is the amp draw, how big is the start bat?
If you use the Echo, and your start bat is small, and you have a big house bank that receives long charge sessions. Then I would probably wire a switch into the Echo.
This will allow you to turn off the Echo during long house bank charging
, and then turn it back on when you get to float stage.
I find many of my customers either would forget to turn it on or off. Many might just take it one ear, only to pass it out the other ear.
My biggest hurdle is convincing the customer that bat banks are just unforgiving of mistake or neglect.
