WOW, Good advise from everyone, BUT you have not stated the primary charging source.
You wrote: "I also have on genset for 110vt power." Will that be your primary or will shore power?
If you will be in a marina hooked to shore power every night, a Xantrex 20 is sufficient. You will be plugged in for 12+ hours overnight and that is sufficient time to charge your bank.
However, if you will be on the hook and using a generator, like a Honda 2000, the 20amp charger is not sufficient. The Xantrex 40 is the minimum. What will be the primary charging source and what other charging sources (wind, solar, generator) will you be using?
