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?
