I am usually trying to keep the batteries above 12 volts so I am looking at charging at around 12.1 to 12.4. I do not know if I would get charging at 11 volts battery voltage or not. Maybe having AGMs and running to lower voltages would produce more charging?

Not to hijack this discussion about charging, but that was a Great article Andy...did not know about that magazine; Thanks for sharing that. When we go to Borrego and a couple places boondocking in the boonies..we also do the graywater sharing with nature; not in the National Parks however.(that comment may ignite this thread.....
