Lead acid batteries do not have a memory. If you discharge them down to 50% or below it is recommended to not store them in that state for very long, but 90% for a week should be no problem.

I just noticed that the description of the product on the website has two different dimensions for the PD 4655 and both are big for. ..... never mind I think I answered myself. .... the metal enclosure is to big, I need to take out the charger part. One last question, replacing the 12 volt board seem like a lot of work..... did use have any issues Hondaman

Not really. Connect all your circuits first but don't switch over the fuses. Then connect your battery and converter wires. Hardest part was finding a large enough screw to hold down the circuit board to the single mount point.

Call progressive and order their charge wizard pendant. The override button is a little hard to get to with the WFCO cover so either trim the cover or buy the pendant and put it more convenient place

a quik charge with a converter at what 30, 40 amps will never bring a battery to a good full charge . the slower the charge the deeper the charge .. what's your hurry anyways
so those 6 volt batteries are 225 amp each ?

I have 2, Trojan T105's. 225 amps at 30hrs. Combine for 12 volts. I dry camp a lot, and don't want to run the generator a long time. I believed that I should always take the batteries back to 100%. That would take to long. I just learned that the PD 4655 will get them back to 90% in a couple of hours and that is all that is necessary. I don't need to get them all the way back. I Wfco 8955 would only put out 13.4 volts at 25 amps. By changing brands I cut my generator time I'm half!!!!!

At home I have AC so it doesn't matter that it takes 36 hours to get from 12.3 volts to 100% (12.8).

so you run the batteries down in one night ? i understand not wanting to run the genny every day . but hard to believe you drain that much power in one night . i have 4 12v 105 amp hr batteries one is removed when i get to my fishing spot for a trolling motor and the others can run me easy for 3 nights , that's furnace , lights and a couple movies on the 42" tv before i have to charge

I reasently installed the Trimetric battery monitor so I'll have a true measurement of reserve power. I've been reluctant to freely use all of the 12 volt accessories (water pump/heater, fridge, lights and heater) I could only guess how long 100 amp hours is. I'm spending 3 days this weekend with no hook up my TM 2030 and my generator. I'm convinced that I can only learn so much reading. I'll be back on Tuesday
