How to connect Cristec battery charger

Battery charger wiring advice please. We had our Cristec 40A charger repaired. When removing it didn't think to take pictures from below of where the various output cords plugged in.

Could someone with the same dual 40A/60A Cristec charger set-up please be able to advise on the correct outputs for the 40A.

The diagram indicates outputs K4, K5, K6, K7 and K12. So is it K4 (-BAT) to house bank and K5 (+BAT D) and K6 (+BAT 1) to engine batteries, K7 open and K12 (+SP) to battery isolater?

Thanks in advance.

Unsure whether some fault in the newly repaired charger (or if we re-connected incorrectly) resulted in some quick onset severe electrolysis assumed to be from stray current. We reconnected the charger 2 days ago - and within 2 days noticed severe white deposit on saildrive anode. Immediately disconnected the charger.

I sold my L450 so I cannot look things up for you.

Here are the manuals: https://www.cristec.fr/english/downloads/

Good luck.

Thanks!

We ended up taking the darn thing out and are going to lug it all the way back to SA back to the guys who repaired it.
