a disgusting foul odor
of rotten eggs could be smelled when entering the boat, I immediately rushed to the heads flushed it five times and poured some desinfectant and freshener in the bowl,the smell persisted !
a couple of hours later and sniffing my way around, I discovered that the odor
was coming from the batteries compartment, upon investigating further, I found out that one of my batteries supposedely maintenance
free deep cycle and sealed,was overheating
and releasing this nasty smell. I disconnected the charger
and it cooled off , the smell receaded but now I am facing another problem, the voltage began to drop reaching 10volts by the end of the day. when i hoohed up the shore power
again and the charge cycle began, the battery
re-heated and the rotten eggs smell reappeared . I will definitely replace the battery
next week and this time I 'll purchase
the automotive old 75 amp /h one even if I have to change it every year,
any one out there can explain this strange phenomenon ??
