Hi... I could use a bit of electrical / battery / inversol help. Here in Cabrera we have street electricity about 60% of the time so for the rest we run our house with 8 batteries and an inversol. For the past 2 months we have been having issues with our batteries getting REALLY hot. The batteries are only about 9 months old and were perfect up until a couple of months ago. I checked them every two weeks for water but they didn't need any adding until just recently (now some of them do every couple of weeks). We have had two different electricians in to look at them but have had no success so far. The first electrician checked all the batteries and said they are all still in good condition. I thought it might be the Inversol but he wasn't convinced so he borrowed someone else's voltage meter, checked them again and saw the batteries were still all good. Then he said he would have to check them when they are all out of power to get a real reading.... is that true? He also turned down the charger rate on the Inversol which certainly did help the batteries to cool down... but it also meant our batteries only lasted an hour or two which is no good! Second electrician put the charger setting back up, cleaned and checked the batteries, all good, left and said to call if they got hot again. They have. His next suggestion is to move the batteries around so they are set up in a different pattern. Will that be any help?? I don't know what to do next. We are going away on vacation in one week with a friend taking care of our house and pets for the time we are gone and I don't want him stuck with all these issues and also don't want our batteries to all get ruined during that time due to the extreme heat they are facing right now!! :/ If anyone has any ideas or advice, that would be fantastic!! Does it sound like a battery issue? an inversol issue (the inversol is at least a few years old (it was here before we moved in 2 1/2 years ago.. not sure how long before that but wasn't brand new)? a street power issue (too strong when charging?)?? I really don't know anymore. Also, if anyone knows a good electrician who really understands battery and inversol stuff in the Cabrera area, that would be great. Thanks so much in advance!!
