Re: Problem with new batteries keeping the charge

Thanks for the comments and input.

I did expect some discharge over a month or so. But what I am seeing is 10-15% discharge over a week.

Also, since the batteries were installed in August, I have anchored overnight several times and had the batteries go down to 12.2V or so before fully recharging them back to 100%.
