Xantrex Freedom Marine - Low Charger Output ?
I recently installed a Freedom Marine 25 combination charger/inverter and standard remote panel.
It seems to work alright, but the most charge output I have seen from it has been 75 amps.
Never any more then that. Even when the batteries were quite low.
I should be getting cloaser to 130 amps on bulk charge
I have also noticed it appears to only be drawing 12 amps or so...which I was under the impression it should be closer to
25 amps AC.
I`ve not been able to plug it into shorepower and see if there is any difference.
I use my Entec 4.2 KW generator, which should power it ok.
( I can run the charger, toaster, watermaker, freezer, and refrigerators fine )

I know there is a "Power Share" function on the remote panel, in order to reduce the output, but
I have it set at 30 amps incoming.

Any thoughts, suggestions??

Thanks in advance,

Yes, there is a difference between shore power and your genset. If you plug into shore power you will see more output. Read and you will be happy you are getting 75 amps
