RE: Betteries disconnected, wall monitor showing full charge.

Is the top light on the display a ā€œCā€ as in charge? There's nothing like that on the monitor. Based on this thread I'll reconnect the freshly charged batteries and let it ride for now. I've already installed solar panels on the roof, and I'm waiting for battery cells to arrive. The end state will be a big 48 volt battery. From that I'll get a new, separate DC-DC converter to produce 12 volts, which I'll run to the DC fuse panel. Thanks for the input guys.

RE: Betteries disconnected, wall monitor showing full charge.

Thanks for the replies guys. I turned off the breaker that the converter is connected to, and of course it shows zero, as the wall monitor is a 12 volt device, so it didn't work at all. Just because it is plugged into shore power doesn't mean it should show full charge should it? That makes it entirely useless for checking battery levels. Surely it should be showing the actual level of the batteries, whether or not I'm plugged in, shouldn't it? It's labeled "Batt Cond" after all... The batteries are disconnected in the first place because they were way below 12 volts. The converter is not charging them, and while the batteries were disconnected to charge on a trickle charger, I noticed the wall monitor still says full. That can't the intended behavior. Something must be miswired.

Betteries disconnected, wall monitor showing full charge.

Hello all, My batteries are currently disconnected (both the chassis and coach) and the rig is on shore power, but the wall monitor still shows that the batteries are full. If they are disconnected, shouldn't it be showing empty? The converter is a Magnetek 6345.
