Re: understand 12v electrical

So I reduce the amp hours entered in the battery monitor from 232 to 209. This cause the charged to jump 10% from 75% to 85%. So it is looking like my new 6 volts may not be putting out the amp hours the monitor thinks they should. I assume if I dropped the amp hours to 185 or so I would count down from 100% properly.

I have contacted the battery manufacture first and will look into returning the batteries.

I am going to do one more charge from shore with the setting at 209 and se what happens. 10% off listed amp hours is normal but 20 to 25% seem to be to much in my mind.
