Re: Upgrading a 2-bank charger to a 1-bank charger/inverter

Re: Upgrading a 2-bank charger to a 1-bank charger/inverter

The regulator is a Belmar reg.

Re: Yanmar water separator filter 4230-0000

Where I sail, in the Chesapeake Bay, diesel quality is good. I suppose if one sails in certain area of the world where the purity of the diesel is questionable, it would be important to invest in the...

Re: Yanmar water separator filter 4230-0000

Re: Yanmar water separator filter 4230-0000

Thank you, Compass, it's good to know I can use less expensive alternatives.
