Well, I have installed the RS2000 in our Journey. I like the way it operates while parked in our driveway, except that it runs all the time. I wonder which mode is best for it to be operated in while in residential storage. I have the coach plugged into a 50 amp source. The fan on the unit runs all the time and the batteries (nominal capacity is 375 amp hours) are in the "float" mode of charging.

There are four system modes: Operate, Power Save, Safe, and Hibernate. I just cannot decide which mode to use while parked and not in use.

If any of you have the unit installed in their coach and have come to a well considered opinion, I would like to hear it.

Thanks a bunch.

Wendell
