Just curious, why do you have the banks split evenly? If you have a house bank, it would make more sense to have three-batteries in it...and leave one for the starter. If they're both house banks, it would make more sense to combine them into one large one.

I think that the two Xantrex chargers you mention are undersized to do a proper job.... and would second Bill's recommendation size-wise. However, I am not familiar with the Iota brand of chargers, but would trust bill's recommendation.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
