Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Alternators and house batteries
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
How is your copper coat project going? I am back on the boat next week and starting to plan my bottom painting.
For my starter battery I know that I have a 12 volt alternator on my main engine, I think that the generator also has a 12 volt alternator. I also have a 12 volt solar panel charging my starter battery separate from my 24 volt panels. My main engine has a separate 24 volt charger for the house batteries.
I carry a 230 volt / 12 volt charger and a 230volt / 24 volt charger.
Plan 'A' If my starter battery died I would disconnect 2 of the 12 volt house batteries and use one to start my main engine or the generator.
