I have a 30amp plus a 50amp charger. They are It seems to me programmed
sso that the 30 should be turned on first and the other after a minute
od so to let the charge rate stabilise. The 50amp one does not take the
volts up to 28.8 and indeed does nothing much once the volts reach
about 27 whereas the 30amp one will take them up to 28.6.
At one time Amel told me that the output can be increased by carefully
scraping the red locking varnish off the left hand trimmer in the
middle and near the bottom of the board and turning it clockwise to
increase the volts. I tried this and broke the trimmer...perhaps I
should have asked a technician to replace the trimmer in the first
The chargers are standard models altered to meet Amel's spec. I sent
mine back to the Reya's factory in the south of France and asked them
to repair it and also to change it back to the standard spec. which
they did and all has been well since. The contact is an Irish girl
whose name is Lucy Kelly lucy.kelly at reya.com
After spending a long time Googling I have found a supplier for the
striper. contact louatantiqueboat.com and specify Embee Striper Model
No 1100 for $29.99. There is a lot of help on painting the stripes if
you enter words like false teak decks in the search box on this site.
Would people please list the subject of their messages so that the
search machine can do it's job.
