I have two chargers on-board:
1. Victron 50amp Phoenix 12v (universal, any input, output or freq)
2. Victron 30amp Centaur 12v (universal)
I have two battery
1. 2 x 12v 152Ah house batteries (sealed) wired in parallel
2. 1 x 12v 780CCA starting battery
Here's the issue, the Phoenix charger
draws power from the shore-power connection only (50amp after all), and it charges the house batteries and the starter battery at the same time.
The Centaur charger
draws power from a simple extension cord, and is used where there is no proper shore-power system, just isolated transformer boxes (10amp - 230v). The Centaur only charges the house batteries.
At my current
marina, I must only use the Centaur, so my starter battery only gets charged when I run the motor
I am almost certain that the Centaur is capable of charging
both the banks, much like the Phoenix. If this is indeed the case (question #1), then do I have to do anything other than run the wiring
? Do I have to re-programme the charger? (question #2).
Thank you in advance, let me know if you need more details.
