ok, thanks everyone.
To answer some of the questions above. I do not plan on bonding my boat as I am worried about the current
damaging the wood around my thru hulls.
As for the batteries, yes, I was thinking about using the odyssey as the starting battery
and the other 3 interstate batteries as the house bank.
As for the generators, they are truly generators and not alternators. These are what came with these original hercules WB engines. They only put out enough charging
to maintain the batteries and not enough to charge. That is why I am adding a separate modern alternator
to charge the house batteries.
Separately, I do have an external 2000 W generator
, that I can plug
into the shore power
inlet to charge the batteries. So, if out longer than a day, that is an option.
My main usage for power will be the refrigerator
, then lighting
(minimized with LED lighting), and navigation
Separately, I will be traveling for 5 days tomorrow on business, so I apologize ahead of time if I don;t respond right away. But please continue to send responses as all responses will help me make a better decision.
