My batteries are two Interstate Grp 27 dated 3/13.
When I got home after work yesterday I check the battery voltage from the battery terminals. The wife was just checking the voltage from a 12v
socket plug in meter. I found the voltage steady at 12.48.
I don't have a Trimetric. I'd like to have one but after looking at the installation instructions it scared me away. Also I'm not sure where to mount it in my 25fb. I guess I could mount it on the curb side pantry wall above the sink and try to fish wires from the slide out pantry area through the bathroom, under the bedside wardrobe to under the queen bed to where all the wires from the battery come up through the floor.
Placing my handheld clamp on ammeter on the negative battery cable it looks like the fridge on LP, one Fantastic Fan, TV amp on and LP detector was drawing about 2 1/2 amps. I started the test at 7:30am and plugged in shore power again at 5pm.
I'm at the conclusion my batteries are performing well enough not to replace at this time. I have today and tomorrow to change my mind before I take off on my trip.
