My partner and I are in the market for a Beneteau 473 or 500, but would consider a Dufour. We have cash waiting in US funds for the next sloop. Can you contact me via email and provide the salvage listings and other information for your hurricane venture? Thanks, eileenjunekrolATgmailDOTcom
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.
