Battery Voltages vs Capacity

Thanks to all for your suggestions. I am going to run the equalzation charge today. Since the battery bank has an inverter attached I can easily add a 100 amp load (its a freedom 25, so 2500 watts at 12 volts equals about 200 amps) by turning on the coffee pot and the microwave.

I guess I am going to have to purchase Calder''s book (or get it from the library) to understand his testing procedure.

Thanks for all the advice, more to come

Zeph
