    P, fwiw Victron manual clearly states that the temperature sensor of their inverter/charger must be mounted on the minus pole.
    So, I suppose that's the one which potentially reaches the higher temp.
    Don't ask me why though - I just trust that someone at Victron should know...

    Thanks for this. My next action is to contact Victron.

    I assume both. I am going from memory as the post was very long and very detailed but length of cables and how an array of batteries was connected was critical which I would never have thought as long as you were using nice fat wires!

    See the difference between method 1 & 2
    Obviously there are 4 batteries in the diagrams but it holds true for 2 as well
