Here is a must read to understand the process >>https://batteryuniversity.com/learn/...alizing_charge
My Xantrex Trucharge 40 has an Equalizer setting-- I do them every 4 to 6 months for usually 8 hours. House Batteries only.

I am not certain your 1999 has the same system as my 2000.

on mine I have the Xantrex Remote panel in the upper compartment above the table. There is a battery equalize function built into the Xantrex bettery monitor system. It is described in the online literature available on the Xantrex website if you do not have the operating instructions.

thx Dale

Thanks NHRA225 I read and have bookmarked the information. Looks like I need to purchase a hydrometer.
I was hoping someone could tell me how to do it with the original Heart Interface control pad.

freedom_458_remote_panel_owners_guide.pdfIs this this the control panel you have?

I hope I am attaching the file correctly -- my panel looks like this although I Have the Heart Interface Source Manager -- and not a Xantrex 458

thx Dale

This brochure about Freedom Chargers/Inverters -- seems to address your remote panel later in the brochure.

It mentions an Equalize function.

Your Charger/Inverter seems to have been replaced from the original.
A lot of them have been replaced by now.



thx Dale

Thanks for the information, between that and NHRA's I will attempt to equalize mine when I find some time, well and a hydrometer.
