Hello, and Thank you
This is a continuation of a previous thread.
van is Ford E-250 2001 RB-50
Charging House Battery Without Driving?
Note, in Aug 2022, I installed a new Fullriver DC210-12APW
House Battery Drain Test:
To assure fully charged, drove 200 miles.
Parked, turned on house Norcold frig to full power 5 to provide power drain.
Using 12V Plug-in Car Battery System Tester:
House Battery Shore-Power Charge Test:
- start drain test
- 0hr, 12.65 green, 60F
- 2hr, 12.55 green, 32F
- 6hr, 12.40 yellow, 28F
- 12hr, 12.20 yellow, 26F
- 24hr, 11.90 yellow, 26F
- stop drain test
Plugged Van to Shore-Power, turned off house Norcold frig, did nothing more, no change to the main house breaker, set the same as when driving.
- start charge test
- Plugged shore-power
- 0hr, 11.90 yellow
- 1 day, 12.25 yellow
- unplugged shore-power
- 2 days, 12.20 yellow
- 7 days, 12.15 yellow
- stop charge test
Plugged into Shore-Power never got to the full 12.65 green
as achieved by driving, maxed at 12.20 yellow
Clueless, what step am I missing, or what is the issue not charging to full 12.65 green
plugged into Shore-Power?
or... Is this the best that Shore-Power can provide?
