Re: Best solar panels for the buck
Bad charger? Bad battery? Check to see how much load you are pulling? You need to do some detective work.
Thanks. Everything is working fine. It's just that our Morningstar Tristar MPPT-45 solar controller is designed to start a new cycle (ie, bulk, absorption, and float) each day. That makes sense when we're away from the dock and the batteries need to get recharged after being discharged all night long. Unfortunately, when the charger is running continuously at the dock, there is no need to recharge each day. I have submitted a ticket to Morningstar to see if this can be changed.
