Mike,
with only running for 2 hours a day its very unlikely that you are fully recharging your batteries every day, I take it you have an electric fridge, tv and lights.

Hi Brian,
You are right, of course. However I have Amp Hour meter and monitor voltage and charging current. Typically the 500AH total bank is down to 11.7 volts after only 55AH taken. When "fully charged" at 14.4volts I am only squeezing in about 2 amps. I think I was sold a duff set of batteries, probably on the shelf for ages.
