How long does the NS2 charge at the bulk rate?

I have a small 4x4 RV with new Lifeline AGM's, 380AH (2-6 volt 6ct's with a 24T in parallel). When I'm driving I may stop several times an hour. When I restart the engine, does the NS2 first go into bulk charge and if it does, for how long? Is bulk time adjustable? If not, could this overcharge the batteries if they are fully charged?

Bulk charge on a fully charged battery lasts about 10 seconds, not long enough to overcharge.

The absorption timer is adjustable, but you may want to put a momentary switch on the LOCK input. By pressing for a couple seconds and releasing, the regulator will go to float.
