OutbackÔÇÖs temperature units

Post by JeffinthePeace » Wed Jan 02, 2019 9:02 am

Happy New Year -
Does anyone have insight into OutbackÔÇÖs battery temperaute units and how they relate to the Celsius or F scale?
For example my batteries are now at 127, and the thermometer in my battery box shows 36C.
I also understand that the Outback temp scale is inverted?? Dropping value = rising temp?
Thanks
J

Found 3 threads referencing the conversion chart but they're old and return a blank page. Anybody have a downloaded copy they'd like to share?
