    also I found this should I just import the values for the East Penn Deka FLA a into my TriStar mppt 60?
    Only if you
    1) understand how to connect computer to Tristar with proper cable
    2) backup existing settings first, with MSView (MorningStarViewerController software)
    3) print a copy of your backups settings to be able to get back there if it all goes wonky.

      Thanks Mike I have written the new settings to a file on the computer that's a great idea to backup everything first. So far I have not turned on the dip switch number eight to write files to the TriStar. Do you think my g110 - 12 batteries are the same as the East Penn Deka batteries?

        They might be close, but they are NOT the SAME. Do you have mfg g110 - 12 manual for them ? That's the preferred setting to use,

          I just got back from the parts store they tell me that my batteries are the same as an interstate gc-2 they printed me some information about charging rates and specific gravity. I guess I should use these values?

            I would if it were my money.

              James read this [U][I][B]STICKY[/B][/I][/U]. Use your hydrometer to tell you what voltage to use. In fact read all the stickies in [B][I][U]this sub forum[/U][/I][/B].
