Where in Riviera Beach would this (your inverter/charger) go? I'm close enough that driving from Vero is an option for a daytrip.
This looks to have a very similar footprint (and output on the same side, even, as my Xantrex - wonder about the input vis-a-vis having to rewire).
It seems from some profile comments that you might be knowledgeable; the xantrex uses a shunt to tell me the amps-type information - charge rate, total amphours down, volts, and the like, via a remote which allows me to flop around the various readings, as well as a second 6-wire to turn it on and off. I'm guessing that I'd just disable the on/off part of the remote (unless I got lucky enough that it would interface! - it's a TM500A) and use the logic part, and their remote switch.
So, I think this has legs. Let me know what to do next, and where it would go (and if you have ideas about transshipping, should I decide not to go to Riviera Beach).
Hello - saw your reply in a thread regarding adding a 2nd AC input, where you described your elec system upgrade. I'm wondering if you might share your AC input configuration with me, particularly how you handled the AC in & out of the inverter. I have a 1987 Brewer 42 with 2 30A AC shorepower inputs, a 1 cord/2 cord selector switch, and a generator, and am adding a Mastervolt Combi inverter/charger. Trying to decide how to manage the incoming AC, and am curious how others have handled 2 AC shorepower connections with an inverter. My Cruisers Forum name is MBSail, and my email is bhendricks at azeos.com -- would love to know how you solved this.
Hi Rourkey, I see your post about the Blue Sea monitor didnt get much response, I am contemplating buying one of these myself. The things I like about it above the usual stuff is all the alarms (especialy bat temp as I plan to put a manual regulator on my big alt.) and the fact you can calibrate iregular shaped tanks.
Any feedback would be much appreciated.
