10 Battery Monitor - What you really need to know
If you do not know the Peukert exponent, I would use 1.13...it may not
be correct, but now that you know how to reset, you will be OK.
Charge the batteries until there are almost no more amps going into the
batteries, then reset as described. You may want to have the batteries load
checked to determine their health.
I recently bought a great new tool for BeBe...a digital battery tester.
If you use batteries like we use batteries, you need more amps. We have
660 amps @ 24 volts...and sometimes it seems like we do not have enough. BTW,
your fridge and freezer have an automatic cutoff when the voltage drops too
low...could be your freezer problem.

Thanks so much for writting the manual!!!
I was able to download it!
Started to read it, this is exactly what I was looking for: Volt on 26.4, etc.
Does the Peukert Exponent matters much? I had trouble to find any info on my
autocraft Deep Cycle Marine 27DC-2
Question: for the last year, I can see little by little I am able to charge
less and less the batteries...
So is it good to "reset" so that they show 100% when they actually
are charged at 75%?
Example my battery bank is 8 time 90 amp/hour /2 so 360 amp
Originally I was able to charge until the Ah would show "0", now it
is showing -68.
So prety much I am able to charge at 298 of my 360 total capacity...
Anyway, THANKS AGAIN SO MUCH!
Can't say I am crazy of Bimini, might move on earlier to Freeport.
Hello to Judy! Sincerely, Alexandre
