Randall For two seasons I ran my bow thruster with just the battery’s almost never starting the generator before using. that huge draw on the batteries sent them to the morgue years sooner than they should’ve died

OK i will ask as I have semi new dead Batteries and was hoping to make it to Florida before refit. Love to know the story.
biggest problem with not starting the Gen is that you significantly shorten the life of your lead acid or gel batteries I'm not sure about lithiums just ask me how I know.........after killing 12 lead acid in just 2 seasons

Craig, I have known Amel to "learn" and add recommendations that did not exist 30 years ago. I don't know when the generator recommendation started, but it in fact does exist.

I stand corrected, thanks.
That you must leave the helm, go below and take, what?, 2-3 minutes to fire everything up, then return to begin docking strikes me as a procedure destined to be ignored.
Be that as it may, I can say with absolute certainty that Amel never gave that instruction for the SN ;-)
