Thanks for the responses. I'll pull one of the house batteries out to check the age but recently I replaced the starter battery
, also a Lifeline AGM
and it was ten years old (Lasted us nearly a year after the purchase
of the boat).
I'm not quite sure if I hastened its demise yet. The house bank has been having problems since we bought the boat but the starter seemed pretty strong when we got it, as proven after an incident with a fuel filter
Unfortuantly work is getting in the way of the boat (writing this from the office). Will have to to drain with a steady charge and recharge to see if that helps. Equalizing will have to wait another week or so
I have a Freedom inverter
so will grab the instructions and see how to get it to deliver the right voltage.
Will post back with results as I get them.
