At $949 with FREE SHIPPING from Welcome to I think it's one of the most "bang for the buck" things I've every bought for the boat....well except that hand wringer I bought my wife for an anniversary gift one year....and yes we are still married, but the boat now has a washing machine....gulp.

Re: Battery Charger

Thanks so far.I have no issue with the Honda had it for years running all sorts of stuff including the aircon in our caravan.
I should point out the solar and wind keeps the batteries up at the moment but we are soon to be on the boat for far longer periods without docking so the battery charger is hopefully just a back up to be used every few days to keep everything topped up if I don't feel like running the motors.

Re: Battery Charger

Hello all,
I couldn't find any info on other threads, so thought I would sneak a question in here:

I have a 2010 Honda 2000i, used to recharge batteries (about 400ah for the house) through the shore cord to a 45a Quick charge converter, and have been doing so for about 8 months. Recently, the Honda/Quick charge setup occasionally triggers an error code on the charger indicating an overload...although the charge sequence hasn't even started. I still get a steady 120v at both Honda outlets, as well as through the various outlets in the boat. Unfortunately, this issue is intermittent...and the setup will, usually, charge normally after I've ran the auxiliary for awhile to charge the batteries. Owner's manual info on the Quick converter is lacking, as far as troubleshooting. Overheating isn't an issue. The Honda doesn't have a bridge installed to tie the neutral and ground together, but it hasn't been an issue in the time it's been used.

Has anyone experienced something similar, or have insight as to testing the Honda or Quick to isolate the problem?

Thanks for any input...Sandy
