Thanks for that Bill
I wondered about that so have checked alternator output by simply checking charge voltage at the batteries. That still seems to be a good output voltage and I’m unsure of any further checks to do.
Many thanks for your help

In some cases and with some alternators, this may cause damage to the diodes in the Alternator.

A guest on board switched my ignition off whilst motoring.
Trying to be helpful.
The engine kept running but I only noticed a few mins later when I spotted the instruments were off
My Perkins control panel has a electric ignition switch that turns on the instruments and starts the pressure alarm etc and I presume power onto the starter etc
Then a momentary push button to start
To stop it’s an electric button.
Does any one know if running with the ignition off for a short while could cause problems ? I’m naive about these electrics but always assumed the shutdown order super important!
The main engine power switch was on throughout.
Many thanks in advance
