    @raven8310 Do you have the inverter hooked up to a panel wired split phase and use any 240v  loads? Or are your loads 120V, trying to get a picture of what it is you have, a solution such as @Estragon suggested using a smaller inverter during periods of low demand, at night for example would dramatically reduce the taxing of the batteries by shifting the 24 hour loads to it. How are you determining the DOD of the battery? Again, just curious.
