Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Failed Dolphin Chargers

I had the same thing happen a few years ago. Cost me a bundle. I think those original hoses are crap. Have some good ones made with proper fittings and reinforced with woven stainless outer covering.
If there is to be any saving of your equipment, it will be by quickly disconnecting them, opening them up, and flooding with Corrosion X or something similar. I got one charger and the A/C pump working again, one charger never came back. Within a year or two the charger and pump failed.
I replaced mine with 2 60A Charles smart chargers. I don't have an inverter any more. I used it rarely in the morning to make coffee, and occasionally my lady friend used it to blow her hair. It's easy to crank up the genset instead.

Bad luck…. FWIW, I have both 50 and a 60 amp chargers and would not want to replace the redundancy they provide with a single unit…. but that is more personal preference than anything.
I am having new “proper” hoses made later in winter… too much cost involved when they fail!!
GL and Happy New Year.
