Changed Out the House Batteries today

Not a big deal, but a lot of heavy lifting involved.

Don,
Good story, very good pics. One addition the inverter only modifies 12 volt DC to 120 volt A/C. Somewhere in those boxes is a "converter" which utilizes shore power to produce 12 volts for the entire DC bus and also provides the charging power for the batteries both banks. Newer ones provide "stage charging" to prevent overcharging and as you mentioned sulfation. You did well though, 5 years is a very healthy life cycle for lead/acid batteries. The inverter and converter is also built in the same enclosure in current years.
