I have been having problems with my start battery
since last fall. My house bank is charging
as expected, but my start battery
At first the problem was intermittent, but now the problem is consistent. I tried replacing the start battery, which is now toast from being run down and not recharged. The battery doesn't seem to be charging
when on alternator
or shore power
So far, the issue hasn't caused me any major headaches because I've always been able to start off my house bank, but the whole situation makes me uneasy, if my bilge pump
run down my house bank while sailing, or my lighting
runs it down at anchor
, I' won't be able to get the boat started and I'm not in an area conducive to sailing home.
Can anyone offer any trouble shooting tips?
