Your battery is not salvageable. Time to recycle it.

You may need to top off the battery cells with demineralized or distilled water before attempting the maintenance mode, depending on the type of battery. Also, you should always try maintenance mode before using the reinforced activation mode, according to the manual.

I think you should try use the reinforce actiation function. This is the function that will help desulfate your old battery.
After you have done that, and if your old battery got revived, it will not show ER4.
ER4 means you have charge the battery for too long, and the reason may be that the battery is dead, so it can not take in much juice. So, try to revive it with the activation function. If it doesn't work, well, time for a new battery.

Question

Is there a manual for this unit (11-1515-4)?

Just purchased one, but there is only instructions for CCA setting and the setting for deeply discharged batteries on a single sheet. There is nothing on other settings or features such as the desulfator function, etc...

There are functions on the charge for desulfatation. It is call reinforce activation on the manual... it's too fancy to figure out what it is at first, but quite a good function. It saved a old battery from going dead for me.
There is manual with the charger unit I bought, but Canadian tyre do not have it online here.

There should have been another complete manual with that unit. Call Canadian Tire's customer service number and they'll get you a copy of the real manual.

No there isn't temperature compensation and on board computer determines the best charging rate. This charger is fully automatic.

If you are looking for manual charger, then Product #11-1586-4 would be what you need.

Reverse Polarity connection;there is a bad connection;or the voltage of the batteryis too low. Verify the polarity and connect the Battery Charger accordingly;verify that the clamp is connected properly; or replace the battery if necessary.

Straight from the manual. Hope this helps!

Here is the Error definition from the manual: "Reverse polarity connection, the battery voltage is too low or bad connection. Confirm polarity and hook up according, check to confirm clamp connection is clean and tight or battery may be defective." If the battery is complete discharged, the battery charger will not be unable to distinguish the correct cable hook-up and will not engage the unit. The battery charger has a built in safety feature and will not engage until it senses that the correct connection (Positive to Positive and Negative to Negative).

Question

How long to charge rv batteries?

I have a Eliminator Intelegent battery charger set on optimal charge. (CCA 650). Charges to 55% charge and 4.5 hours left to charge. It then does not change after that. I am running the charger on a GT1200 Power G generator . Does anyone know why.

Using those settings is a bit of a gimmick. I have tried using those different optimal settings and only once did it actually seem to work. Just set it on say the 20A setting and monitor the voltage and/or the percentage remaining, but the voltage setting is best. The battery is fully charged once the battery voltage reaches approx 14.8 V.

Running off the generator should pose no problems whatsoever. Even on the 40A setting the charger only draws about 5 or 6 amps which poses no threat of voltage drop even using a small #18AWG cable. A generator will typically give you cleaner power than your utility company.

answer 2
Typically the units can account for fluctuating current; however, if you are running the unit off of a generator and using a light gauge long power cord, it may be too volatile for the charger to compensate for. Try using a large gauge (6 or better) extension cord. It is also worthwhile noting, the charger will cycle on and off in order to prepare the battery for a complete charge.

Question

Proper charge

How do you select the proper charge (2, 10, 20, 30, 40), how do you know if the charge is too powerful for a battery? Also, what if you select a charge rate that is too powerful for the battery? Will the charger compensate for this mistake?

A good rule of thumb is not exceed 1/5 (20%) of the amp-hour rating of the battery. So for example, if you have a 120 A-hr battery, you shouldn't charge it at more than 24 Amps (120/5). So you would use the 20A setting.

It depends on the size (capacity) of the battery. Small batteries (such as those used in most motorcycles, ATVs, etc) should be charged at the 2A rate. Most typical car, truck, marine batteries can be charged using anything from 10 to 20 amps. The 30 or 40 amp settings should only really be used for big batteries like commercial trucks but you can use it for auto batteries if you need a really quick charge - but it will cause long-term damage to your battery so I wouldn't recommend it. No matter what rate you select, the microprocessor will gradually reduce the rate towards the end of the charge cycle to make sure your battery doesn't overcharge. Stick to 10-20 amps for car batteries to help your battery last its longest.

Yes you can but DO NOT connect the charger to one battery only. Use the +ve from one and the -ve from the other battery for charging/discharging two batteries connected in parallel.

answer 2
It depends. Are your batteries 6V or 12V? If they are 6V then NO because this is a 12V battery charger. If they are 12V then YES. Given they are wired in parallel, it's still 12V. The charger just thinks it's one big battery. The key is making sure you use a charge rate that is high enough for two batteries combined. CCA isn't really a good measure of size; it's more about amp hours. Check your batteries for their Ah rating (X 2 because you have 2 batteries) and divide it by 8 to get the MAXIMUM safe charge rate. For example, if your battery is rated at 50Ah X 2, then you should charge them together at no more than about 100/8 = 12A. (This is for conventional wet/flooded batteries. If you have AGM or gel batteries, the rate should be set lower. Check the internet - there's a ton of really good info.)

No, the charger won't tell you how much mAh or Ah is going to the battery, and does not display the current output. If you want that reading, you have to measure it using a current meter. The unit does tell you how much time is remaining until your battery is charged, though.
