Don't be surprised if it takes a little longer (maybe a lot longer) to get to float mode than you thought. It will eventually get there, and when it does you'll be pleased with your battery's performance. Glad it all worked out.
BTW - A lot of us defeat the search mode so the inverter will continue to produce 120vac for extremely light loads, such as TV and radio presets, clocks, etc. Just be aware that this is an option if you need it.
