Hi everyone.

My EC200 display unit is telling me my vehicle battery is (poor) but yet it starts lovely since running it the last couple of weeks? Also on the display when I push the top right button 'battery icon' the little red led don't light up anymore. I'm wondering if it's the EC200 display playing up or in actual fact my vehichle battery is on its way out? About 2 weeks ago I did have to jump start the motorhome when I picked it up from storage tho. Any advice is appreciated thanks.

Not long enough!
Peraps put it on hook up for a few days to fully charge everything then see what happens.

Yeah I tried that, I thought the same but it still says poor battery 0.00%, I think I will go and get the battery checked tomorrow so I can rule it out or replace it :)

A "good" Battery, rested, should show 12.5+ish Volts with no drains or charging and hold that over a period of time. Recommended periods for a battery stored not in use is to charge about every 3 months.

I have 2 in my garage, which are off classic cars. They are permanently connected to a couple of the cheap 10w solar panels from Aldi. Which keeps them in good condition without overcharge.
