Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] 50 AMP charger not charging crossing to Nassau


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Bill,

Finally had the time to look at the battery charger.
I tested the Dirupter breakers it is ok.
I checked all the fuse, swap them and they are ok.

I have the following lights:
Green to show it is ON (which by the way very slighty pulse) so could that be
"Fuse Def" is RED

The owner manual says: if the ON/OFF light blink (which doesn't completely in my case) the causes are:
Electrical Connection out not good.
Temperature sensor external not well connected.
Temperature sensor external in open circuit
Short circuit or overcharge outside.

I don't know what to do...

Thanks in advance,

Sincerely, Alexandre

Alex,
Check to see that when you switch
the breaker ON, 230V does indeed go to the charger. The
Dirupter breakers will fail, but normally they just pop OFF
when failing.


I have not had the problem, but I know that there is a
small bag of extra ceramic tube fuses and some spade-type
fuses taped to the left side of  the chargers on BeBe
387.
In the following
photo, I circled the ceramic tube fuse, because I believe it
is most likely, but check the spade fuses as well. Also,
check to see if the fan is working. In my experience, the
fan quits working and the charger overheats causing either a
fuse to blow, or something else to burn up.

Good afternoon,



Just cross from Port Lucaya, Grand Bahama to Nassau, New
Providence.



When I started the genset to recharge the battery, the 50
AMP battery charger did not show any charge on the link 10.


Thanksfully the 30 AMP was working and I recharged the
batteries and continue my trip.



Since I was tired and had to work, I haven't had the
time to look at it.



Any things I should be looking for?



Thanks in advance!!!



Took 21 hours for the crossing, wind were up to 16 kt true /
21 apparent so up to 8.4 kt. No wind 15 NM away from Nassau
motored the rest. Arrived at low tide, on the way to the Bay
Street Marina, which is West of the bridge, gently touch
once the bottom (soft).



Local are saying, the bridge is 75ft tall, while books say
it is 65... will not take the chance.
