The load sense function is problematic. You will want to disable it.

A side note, that 12.8VDC is too high for a float charge.
Is that a typo? Cause if not, I think you have some wrong information. "Float" voltage is pretty much universally agreed to be in the 13.3-13.6v range, depending on battery type, temperature and which expert you ask.

Here is one table showing float voltages. They are usually given at 77 degrees F., a battery industry standard for measurement.

I'll agree with the others: turn the Sense feature off. Changing the sense watts is not likely to achieve anything useful. None of the settings are low enough to respond to modern electronics, which may run at power levels measured in milliwatts rather than 10's of watts. If you want the inverter to stay one standby, turn sense Off. If you only want it on when needed, turn it off/on manually via the button on the Xantrex remote panel.

On the other hand, the voltage pulses you measured aren't hurting anything either. They are merely a wasted effort.

Good catch! Thanks Gary. I fat-fingered that one, I meant to type 13.8V is too high even though the Xantrex owners manual states it is normal.
