Sounds good Ninja :-)

When the Sterling charger is putting 14.8v into your leisure batteries, how many volts is it putting into your starter battery please :-)

did you read the link i gave you when you asked me the same question about my sterling?..

Yeah, I knew I'd asked the question before :-)

I asked again because there can be problems when a battery sensing regulator is used to control the supply to more than one battery bank, so I am hoping that you tell us your start battery voltage before :-) members here who have battery sensing regulators don't get their fingers burnt :-(

If you are trying to start a fight perhaps we'd better go outside and sort it out man to man :-)

I should think you have all the glittering talent in that field. You do fine on your own. :wink:

Batteries were on float charge earlier when I drove the van. Leisure batteries were 14.8v and starter 14.2v.

Sounds an excellent system you have there Tom :-)
Your 14.2v across your starter battery posts seems pretty impressive compared with other results show on this forum.

What's your secret for getting higher voltage across your starter battery posts than most please :-)

That's true MidLife.
I deliberately left the word "Please" out to avoid innuendo.

Over and out.
