- Trickle (Float Mode) 13.2 Vdc (after 48 hrs.)

That, hoever still does not explain the OP's problem IMO.

A proper charging algorithm for the ABS portion for flooded cells should be more like 14.4 v until the charging amps drop pretty low (usually a couple hours). It makes no sense to expect 13.6 volts to do anything after the bulk charge.

To much information, probably, but there it is.
Which is one reason I recommend a progressive dynamics.

X's 2 on Progressive. In storage mine stays on 13.2 when I switched to progressive 4 stage. My water has not boiled or gassed out since. plus you have the desalination or cleaning of the plates every 21 hrs. for 15 mins @ 14.4. to pro long your batteries. To me the OP problem is over charging plus a bad board. the wire he is pulling off is the humidity switch I think.

you have to have a convertor some where i guess they hide it pretty good. May be someone who has your unit will chime in, if not call your dealer and ask him where it is located.

There is no door for the converter you have to take the whole front panel off as in my picture that I showed in the previous post

This is the distribution panel with the whole front cover removed and the converter pulled out

me tinks there is confusion between the fridge control board and the Power Converter which is part of or close to the circuit breaker/fuse box. TURBS is showing the power converter and the OP is showing the back of the fridge.

Regardless of the fridge issue, the converter should probable be replaced with a Progressive unit.

The fridge issue still makes no sense to me... Not that that is unusual, I am frequently confused by this stuff.

See now im confused I though he was having a fridge issue as well as a converter issue.

So maybe I'm the dumb one eh?


So is he talking about the fridge board calling it a converter?

Turbs I think he thought that was the convertor, is the way it seems to me. I think that is what he found and thought that was the convertor, He really has two problems. The high voltage problem probably caused the refer problem to begin with, thats why it works when he pulls that wire off. just a guess but that is what I read and see.
