While running, I can't utilize my Battery Charger
as it overcharges my starting/engine batteries. A year ago I installed a new Kohler 6EKOD.
D435 IPS with extra alternator
for the house (all alternators were new and have less than 100 hrs). My Battery Charger
is a Pro mariner 12V 50Amp. All batteries are less than 12 months old with proper maintenance
My question is:
- Should I have to use my battery charger at all while underway or should my alternator
supply sufficient house supply? I've received a low battery indicator in the past from the Volvo
EVC system. I believe Volvo EVC only monitors the engines and therefore the starting batteries, so why would I get a low voltage notification?
When I received the notification, the only real load was a perhaps a few lights and the stereo radio
(which does draw with all of its amps and accessories).
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
