Until the inverter is turned off completely, either via remote or on the front of unit it will draw power, it goes into standby mode. Waiting for a load. Depending on the remote you have, if you have on they turn off differently. A link remote or basic.

My freedom 20 charger/inverter does not seem to drop down to a float charge and continues to charge batteries at a rate which makes it necessary to add water continually to my house batteries which consist...


The charger has four distinct charging stages - 1) Bulk, 2) Acceptance, 3) Float, and 4) Equalization. If your batteries are old and therefore won't reach full charge, the charger may not be able to get them up to the voltage where float charging kicks in. If you ever allowed the water in the batteries to get down to where the plates were exposed, one or more of your batteries may be contaminated with excessive sulfate buildup on the plates. The equalization process (Stage 4,which must be entered manually) will help to return any excessive sulfate builup back into solution, so you might try that and see if the performance improves.

How do you verify that the unit is charging the batteries? Freedom 20 Inverter charger


The really only way one can tell if batteries are being charged is assure them are topped off then trickle charge them with external charger overnight and then check the voltage is 13-14.5 VDC. If not check that battery life is not expired and exchange them if it is. ALSO... one can always extend the life of batteries (deep-cycle) by charging them with a large professional automotive unit in the high power START position over night. WARNING: Assure the caps are loose as you "boil away" the plate corrosion over night due to the very explosive H2 gas generated. No smoking!!

The fan can be replaced. It is very similar to some of the PC cooling fans. I've got the same problem (again) and will be replacing it soon. I will give you the fan specs once I remove my fan ( I think it is 4" 120VAC - will let you know when I repair mine).
