Vansco battery drain
Our Apex suffers from chassis batts draining too quickly. We came home from the auto elec shop this Monday, they replaced the Sure Power battery separator 1315-200, (burnt contacts on the solenoid). Parked 1 day outside, no power, sun on solar panel. Then moved inside, 30 amp plugged in, the house batts went from 12.7 to 13.1v, S/L charger indicated 34 amps and in FLOAT charge. This morning the house is at 13.0 and the chassis was at 11.9v. I also noted that the charger was showing FLOAT at 0.0 v, yesterday and today. I then plugged in the batt temp sensor into the Xantrex RS 2000. Shortly, the chassis were at 13.8 and house at 13.9v, charger in Float at 47 amps.
Xantrex tech had recommended that I disconnect the temp sense because my charge voltages were in the 15.0v range in bulk and 14.0v in float. With no sensor, they were at 14.2 bulk and 13.3 float, more the correct level for AGM batts.
The auto elec tech tracked down a power drain from the Vansco. Does any one know a Qualified repair facility for Vansco? Is there a source for the WRV software and how it was set up?
Trombetta/ batt separator is new.
Chassis batts 5 months new.
House batts, AGM, 900ah, 17 months new.
Alternator, 4 months new.
Lifeline suggested I should equalize the house batts, at what voltage setting do I set the S/L and for how long? I understand that I will have to go a "flooded" setting to get the RS 2000 to cooperate with this exercise.
I'm sure there are other power draining issues and the charge cycle not always starting in bulk. Any suggestions are appreciated.
