Re: Uneven Water Loss in Batteries

How are the 2 house bank batteries wired? Are you drawing across them evenly or are both connections to loads only on one battery?

On a bank of 2 batteries in parallel the positive lead should come from one battery and the negative lead from the other. If both cables are on the same battery the batteries are not being evenly used.
