Refrigerator? Thermostat?

Thanks Barry, the answer is no, But it is in the off position no light or anything working. I did not know if that would show a load in the off position? I thought of it as kinda a light switch if it's not turned on. Do you think it will show as a load? Thanks

Well to make along story short. After 48 hrs of nothing pulling amps my unit still reads in absorption @ 13.6. I have to stop it now being my wifes want the refer to start cooling so she can load it. I have not given up yet, just will have to wait for another time. What it might be is the meter plugged into the cigarette lighter. I'm going to try and talk to WFCO and see what they say. In 18 mos. I have never seen it drop to 13.2 float even all last winter just plugged in at my home.

I have just talked to tech support for WFCO, He stated that if I'm showing 13.6 or 13.7 that the unit is not charging my battery at that time.( I question that) If I need to charge my amps will go down to the voltage I need such as I could pull 2 amps and my meter should drop to 13.4 or float to bring it back to absorption at 13.6. If I'm using a lot of amps say 10 it will go to charge mode of 14.4 to bring it back to 13.6 absorption. He stated that WFCO is weird that way. So in reality you never go into so called float. This is not registering with me. Float is between 13.2 as they stated and 13.6. I guess it will take someone smarter then me to figure this out.

Wow. Sounds like nonsense to me too. I also just spoke with Tech Support at Progressive Dynamics. Much better story there. Please read my post #11 here.

Now that sounds correct I just read it. In reality the WFCO will not go into float mode to save your battery from gassing, now I know why I keep putting distilled water in. I just went in the trailer and turned on all the lights and the meter dropped to 13.47. Barry if your meter shows 13.64 you are charging then. Am I thinking right here? I like that progressive intel 4 stage. My next thing to replace. It will be either that or 2 new batteries. Thanks for the info that helps. I'm sure FR knows this. For about $70.00 more they could put in a decent convertor. Thanks..
