You have asked me about the set up before, nothing has changed.
It is going on 5yrs since I put this system in, I have checked the voltage about 4 times, and that was usually because someone here responds to my post or has sent a pm asking how it's doing.
The best thing is there has been no filling with water, no cleaning of terminals, no acid leaking anywhere, I pretty much would call that no maintenance, I put the terminals on top and it takes all of about a minute to check them, 4 minutes in 5yrs .

I am by no means saying this is the way it is to be done. There's always more than one way to skin a cat. This is how others and I have done it and I'm well pleased.

What I don't get about the controller HV cutoff is.....does the charging of a pack "go thru" the controller to allow the controller to cut off the charge?

I get how my BMS monitors each cell and provides the HV cutoff, but I don't get how my controller would be "involved".
It's been almost 5 yrs ago I probably mis stated that about the controller, I recall setting a voltage limit on it, may have been a low voltage cutoff.
