Time for an external regulator
and I am wondering what else is recommended other than the Blamer (AR5?)as I had one fail at 300 hours. An anomaly maybe??
I also dislike the magnetic screwdriver programming!!
I also had an Ample Power
a very long time ago but did not put enough hours on it to know
Application is a sailboat, Lehman
80, single alternator
, with 6 x Trojan 105's + 2 x 8D on the bow thruster bank. Long motoring hours at times, and I run the engine
to charge batteries as a last resort when the solar
cannot keep up
Technology marches on so what is the flavour of the day?
As an aside 2 Echo chargers from Xantrex are used for the bow thruster batteries and I would like the regulator
to handle the charging
of these as well when the engine
is on, with the Echo running when on shore power
