How to configure my Solar MPPT controller to AGM?

Question:

Last year I installed a Gioco 130W solar panel with a Genasun GV-10 Pb controller to charge my older flooded lead acid batteries along with a Victron BMV-700 Series battery monitor. I have just purchased brand new AGM batteries and I am wondering what steps I have to take before replacing the old batteries? - Heidi

Answer:

Heidi, change the setting on the GV-10 solar controller to reflect the new AGM battery type.  In the original packaging, there was a small jumper that was added for flooded batteries.  You will have to remove the 4 screws at the back of the controller and, very carefully, remove the jumper.  For specifics, click here to download the manual.   - Jeff
