Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Isolated ground on the Genset
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Eric, I ran into some weirdness like that installing a new inverter charger. If you have one starting battery, then the ground may not be on the genset but on the main engine.
I chased down a ground to a small coiled wire going from the volvo starter negative to the Amel bonding system.
When I lifted the lead there was no connection between 12v neg and Amel bond.....however while the engine started normally it would not turn off with this wire disconnected.
I haven't had any issues with anodes or corrosion so I left it as it was.
P.S. we were repowered by Amel in 2002 and have the 7.5kw genset and Volvo TAMD22
