SAR V3-12P Absorption voltage

I have just installed a SAR V3-12P to charge my bank of Trojan T105 batteries. I only have an absorption voltage of 14.2 volts at 30 degrees centigrade and I need to charge the batteries at 14.5 volts. There does not seem to be any way of altering the voltage as there was in the earlier Ample Power Regulator that I had. What can you suggest?

Where did you get 14.5 at 30C from? That's higher than we'd recommend.

You can get a higher value using the Thick Plate setting.

I am using the Thick Plate setting. Trojan recommends charging at 14.6 Volts at 80 degrees F. - reference one of Trojan's company data sheets.
