Humm,
Did all this JuicingUp of the MH
I unplugged the MH from shore power and the Batteries read 13.3 on the inside Smart Gen panel.
Turned on a light and of coarse the fridge is already on power.
The power dropped pretty quickly to 12.5

Any thoughts on that??

That could be pretty close to their "normal" voltage.
When my 12 volt 27s are just taken off the charger: they normally read 13.2 volts. Once that "surface charge subsides: they settle in ar 12.6 volts.

Hoping for the best :-)

Thank you for responding

Bob's right about surface charge. I've found that excess capacity is still usable energy if you time it right.

I'm very interested in your solar
I assume you used the prewiring
What other items did you have to purchase/install to make this happen

Pics would be great
