Just Installed a Magnum Power MS-2000

... Something I have wanted to do for a long time and finally got around to swapping the factory Dimensions with the MS-2000..

One thing I notice is that the reported charge/ discharge rates are WAY off.. ! The spec's say reported current (at the panel) is +-20%, and I'm seeing 25%. In other words, the panel is showing a charge of 108A, and my known accurate amp clamp is reporting 78A. On the discharge (Inverter) side it shows a 15A draw from the coach, and my amp clamp is showing 20-22A ... that's nuts.. It's not just me, I saw the same thing with a friends unit recently while camping.

Is anyone aware of a calibration procedure for this unit? I will definitely call the factory on this one but figured I'd check here 1st.
