We are trying to leave the dock
and go to the Bahamas
for a month or so.
I have 12 6-volt Trojan T-105 Lead Acid batteries
. They are about 3 1/2 years old now. I've only owned the boat
for the last 1 year 1/2, attached to a dock
all except a 45 day trip to the Bahamas
Prior to my ownership
, the boat
was on the hard
and went threw Hurricane
Matthew in a boat yard with questionable power. So the batteries
have unknown abuse prior to my ownership
I've equalized twice within the past month. Hyrdometer is coming back in the green.
tests at the dock are not going well. I'm dropping to 12.5 volts within 3 hours of disconnecting shore power
, with very small draws going on. My laptop
is plugged in to AC, and my AC fridge kicks off every once in a while drawing 10 amps DC.
Time to replace? Anything else I can do to test? I have access to a load tester, but I'm not sure it would do much. I know these batteries are getting older, but they don't have alot of cycles on them.
