Re: House Bank vs. Engine Start
Bill,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The PO replaced with a brand new Yanmar prior to our purchase. The house bank had multiple failed or weak batteries, wouldn’t maintain a charge although we had been a marina mostly. Of course before learning about running the generator when using the bow thruster I am sure we had taken a toll on them. Engine would start while connected to shore power, me starting it thinking I had turned shore power off. The next day we were departing and o disconnected shore power tried to start the motor and it would start for a second then stop nearly immediately.
I also don’t have the switch that some seem to have on their SM’s to cut off the main bank. I do have a switch in the port locker but didn’t try that before replacing the house bank.
I just worry about having this happen somewhere at anchor and having to row!
S/V It’s Good
