Charging batteries
« on: September 28, 2021, 06:19:42 PM »
I have a two battery system. One house battery and one starter, separated by a blue seas battery combiner. I have a xantrex charger and a xantrex monitor. If my battery’s get run down and I charge them by running the boat I get a 100% charge but if I plug the boat in at home I am not getting a full charge. Any ideas as to why? I am baffled

I don’t know the answer, but I am learning a lot on YouTube from “Ask PYS”
It’s a channel run by an electrical engineer who specializes in boats.  He works out of Vancouver BC.  He sure knows his stuff.  I would bet he has already published an answer to your question.
