I think I got a dud...
Been running one of my Frankenstein systems pretty hard and fast the last month along with quite a few spotty solar days. This is my experiment with deep cycle marine batteries from AutoZone. Suddenly found a dramatic decline in the bank's ability to hold a charge overnight. Pretty sure I got a dud in the mix. A battery bank is only as good as it's weakest teller. Will check them all tomorrow afternoon after they get a good gulp of juice from our first full day of sun in awhile. 90,98,75,0,B
