Eric, the most likely issue with the 100 amp charger is the input.  If you are using a charger that is set for 50 cycles and you are running it at 60 cycles you will have issues.  Second if the current from the dock or gen set is more then the voltage rating on charger you'll also get errors.  We solved the problem using an 80 amp output Dolphin/Reye charger that accepts 90-260 volts and either 50 or 60 cycles.  It has worked very well without issue. 

Good luck see you in Annapolis?

I have a 100 and a 30 amp battery charger. The 30 amp charger puts out 27.5

volts which I believe is correct. The 100 amp charger is now putting out

almost 30 volts on dockside power and on the genset. This of course is too

high. Does anyone know how to diagnose

this problem? Do you know of an agent in the USA?
