Victron Controller Charge Settings

I have the Victron 100/50 charge controller. It comes from the factory with 8 built in charge algorithms. The factory sets it at number 2 which is:

Absorption 14.4 volts
Float 13.8 volts
Equalize 16.2 volts @ 8%

Is this the proper setting for my 4 Trojan T-105's or does one need to go into the expert mode to tweak that?

That chart is very interesting but the BB settings are different from those given to me by BB and those listed on the BB webpage. BB itself says these are the settings to use with the Victron BM and I would think with any others as well.

Battery capacity: 99 Ah
Charged voltage: 14.4 volts
Tail Current: 4.0%
Charged detection time: 3 minutes
Peukert Exponent: 1.05
Charge efficiency factor: 99%
Current threshold: .10 amps
Time to go average: 3 minutes
Zero current: zero
Synchronize: sync
Relay mode: default
