I have a Balmar
that I installed this year. Watching it the other day I found that it goes into float too early (reset it by turning the key off/on). It is programmed for FLA batteries
and the default voltages for that match my batteries
. I noted that when it was in Bulk charge and the regulator
says that the voltage is 14.6V that the battery
really was only at 14.1V. That voltage difference is a big difference in amps into the battery
I'm thinking the problem is that the Red "power" lead for the regulator, which is also its' voltage sense, is connected as standard to the output lug of the alternator
. I'm thinking it would be better to move that wire to be directly on the battery.
Any problem with doing this?
