Hi, just a quick question thats probbaly been answered 100 times before. We are now in St Martin
with our 220V boat and would like to charge the batteries from the 110V shore power
. Our shore power
chargers are 2 cristec CPS30Em 40A. From the manual:
All CPS3 battery
chargers can operate automatically and equally on single
phase networks from 85 to
265VCA and from 47 to 65Hz.
On board we have a switch which was installed with the inverter
that selects Shore/off/inverter.
I would like to be able to bring the batteries up to full charge and possibly also heat the hot water
, but thats not critical.
Is it just a matter of making an adapter plug
for my existing shorepower cord to charge the batteries, and leave the switch in the inverter
position so the sockets run at 220V via the inverter?
Im not sure how the fridges are wired, are they usually 12V or would they be 220V when plugged in and possibly damaged by connecting 110V?
Any advice appreciated.
