Renogy Wanderer charge controller

Hi,

Well i have a two month new system; 200w Renogy kit with two t105 trojan batteries.
I have a dead trojan battery i am returning today but i am reading the charge controller output and it is at 14.3v. Isnt that way too high? I have a inverter running a fan, so it has a load. Wondering if my charge controller went bad.

And experience here?

Thanks!

Update;


Emailed Renogy tech support and they responded within 20 minutes

Send me some data on the equipment and guided me. Clearly have a bad Trojan at 3v and some white crud on top. Nationwide golf batteries is returning it under warranty.

Nice. Honest companies are good to deal with.

If you check Trojan's website, they recommend charging at 14.8V. Handy Bob has an entire rant about the RV solar industry messing with us.

Good luck!
