Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Batteries with different voltages
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Here are some simple ideas for gaining information before spending money or changing wiring, Oliver
can you do without electricity for a bit, long enough to disconnect the batteries? then
1) Use a a good Ohm meter to check the resistance in each connecting wire used to parallel and series the batteries
if all the wires from terminal to terminal show 0 resistance then
2) check individual resting voltage of each isolated battery
3) do you have a modern load tester? test the isolated batteries with this instrument.
4) is there anything under the batteries that could provide a hidden ground connection?
This may give you an idea of how to proceed with this unusual problem that does not seem to be Amel-related.
