Another item worth mentioning is to make sure you have a good 3 phase charger/invertor if you plan to leave the batteries in the circuit. Otherwise you will ruin them in very short order as many here have discovered
I dont know what AS is using in the new units but if in doubt flip the battery disconnect switch when you are not actually charging and you should be fine.

I think "3 Stage" is a better term to describe a good charger/inverter as "3 Phase" conjures up big equipment in my mind. Also an FYI for newbies, when you are on shore power, flipping the battery disconnect switch on newer AS does connect/disconnect the batteries with a "click" but the indicator led does not change state. It's confusing at first.

Just nit picken this morning. Brad
