Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Masthead lights do not last

Some newer chargers have an automatic equalizing cycle that kicks in after the absorption phase. I have that turned off on Christie because I want to be able to turn off all 24 V equipment before equalizing.

I know that when I start my battery chargers (genset or shore), the voltage goes much higher.
I actually stop the 24 volt fan until the voltage stabilize.

Did you measure how many volt you are getting?

Thanks Alan. I'm inclined to agree;
that is, it is most probably an issue with masthead lamp
holder.  My charger has manual equalization which has not
been used; settings are appropriate for my battery type.

No I don't think so....you can't get
voltage surges with a big battery bank.IF it could
possibly happen you'd be having all sorts of issues with
lamps and other 24VDC devices.The ONLY way you
MIGHT have an issue with this would be if you used the
EQUALISE cycle on your battery charger while the masthead
light was on. The EQUALISE cycle raises the voltage to
around 32VDC for a while, but that is something you would
rarely do, possibly only if you had flooded batteries that
you suspected of being sulphated, and if you know about
equalising batteries, you would also know to turn off
anything on the DC circuit before starting to do
it.Its much more likely that you have bad
connections, salt water ingress into the lamp
holder.....CheersAlanElyse
