Charge voltage

Small camper: 200 watts solar, 2 : 100 Amp Battleborn LiFePo4 (200 W), Mppt 100-20 solar controller, Smart shunt, Orion DC DC smart charger. I have tried what I believe are all the possible configurations in setting up Victron Connect battery section. The batteries used to charge to 14.2 but now 13.2 is the highest and it is reading 100%? Is there a standard template settings which I could use? All help appreciated.

Your batteries are full, so the chargers are in Float at 13.2. This is correct, no changes need to be made.

OK thank you for the reply. I was lead to believe that BB LiFePo4 batteries don't like to be in Float?

That's incorrect. Battle Born specifies the correct float voltage for their batteries - if I recall it's 13.6v, but that can be verified with them directly, the user manual of your batteries, or with the authorized reseller from whom you purchased them.

EDIT TO ADD: here's their own topic on it, I was close - should be 13.6 or less for float.
