you probably have an inverter charger. when they lose power, and regain power, they have a 30 sec delay before they accept power, and pass it through to the boat again.

Re: Battery charging by engine

I might be way of base here..
but for those that say you cannot get the full voltage out of an internally
regulated you have isolation diodes between the alternator
and the batteries? if you do have you adjusted the alternator output for
the isolation diodes? fyi those diodes cost about 0.6v of output
I do understand the difference between the stages..but cars and trucks don't have
3 stage chargers..and have just about the same system..
I do like the idea of bypassing the generator impeller using an AC pump..
