I have an older vehicle that has an external regulator. The external regulator only charges the start battery. Ordinarily, the 'floating' led will display after about 30 minutes of travel. The regulator is set at the low end. What I would like to know, if the vehicle is stationary, can I
- increase the setting of the regulator so to equalize 'deep cycle' batteries
- not buy a generator for backup, instead, start the engine and use the regulator at a higher setting than usual to fill the batteries.
