Charge reboot.

So I go into the trailer and the volt on the TriMetric is 12.6. I'm plugged into 120 OK but the charger isn't putting out. Unplugged it and plugged it in. No change. Removed the fuses on the charger and put them back in and bang.... 14.4. What's that.........

I don't know. Someone might have an idea if they knew what brand/model of charger you have.

12.7 is the normal float voltage for three-stage converters. Your meter may be off by .1 volt or maybe the converter's voltage is off by a little bit. Rebooting the converter will put it back in bulk charge.

13.2 has been the 'float' voltage of both three-stage converters I have had (Progressive Dynamics and WFCO).
