Xantrex panel versus "check level" panel?
 
Is the battery level (four lights as with holding tanks and fresh water) of CHECK LEVELS PANEL referring to house batteries, same as charge LEDs (and battery status three lights) on Xantrex panel OR is Xantrex strickly house batteries and other panel referring to chassis? Often my Xantrex status light will be at FULL while other panel reads 3/4 charge (three lights). This may not amount to much at all as the 3/4 level usually soon comes back to four light status, but it is hot out and I am at computer asking questions. Bill.

The nickname for these lights are called "idiot" lights. I doubt they are very accurate, or they have a range value, so they are in the red, yellow, or green range.

Buy a good voltmeter, or better yet buy this. I think every RV should have one.

At least the Xantrex panel is much more detail than the other panel's colored range jof four lights. So, both panels refer to house batteries, CORECT?
