  1. Battery chargers

    I need a charger for permanently conectod when not on the nb
  2. Battery chargers

    Thanks lads looks like Ii will be looking for a new battery charger one that can charge 4 110 and that can be permanently
  3. Battery chargers

  4. Think I have found one reason why my voltage dropped at the 12 volt control panel oh dear some terminals nuts where loose and completely full of corrosion, and it took six pints of distilled water to top up four 110 battery's think the battery's were in some desperate nead of maintenances PS getting to my battery's is a right pain
  5. Voltage drop when fridge turn on

    Just been to the NB today. To check battery's as I had 2 on charge 1 is good the other on holding a charge ,put the other 2 on charge I will check the in the morning ,so the dud one must have been taking the other 3 down ,going to renew all terminals and put all new cables on hope this sorts my problems out
  6. Voltage drop when fridge turn on

    i did have the engineer but he only looked a the cables running to the 12 volt fridge and he said they are fine ,going to get all new battery terminals check all battery cables and put Vaseline on the terminals dont think half the battery's were delivering power ,when trying to get at the battery's is awful and nearly 71 years old dose not make it easy. filled all with distilled water and put 2 batteries on charge ,might be no good now as some sells where bone dry
  7. Carrying spares

    Just join the RCR let them fix it if you brake down
  8. New fridge on. Start up

    Hi all just fitted new 12 volt fridge to replace our 240 volt one which I had to run of the 3,000 watt inverter when I turn on the fridge on at the 12 volt. Control panel the volt meter on the panel drops to 9.6 volts from 12.7 just for two seconds then goes back to12.7 again ,just shows you how much power It takes to start up a 12 volt fridge PS running off 4 110 battery's
  9. New fridge on. Start up

    Ha Ha its finely sunk in thanks lads
  10. New fridge on. Start up

    Just had a look what i need to wire from battery's to the new 12 volt fridge 10 mm2 hell thats think stuff ,might get away with 8 mm2 i will have to see how fare away the fridge is away from battery's
  11. New fridge on. Start up

    What I am going to do is pull all the domestic battery's out and check for distilled water while there out and clean all the terminals then back put vasoline on them ,and work back through the wiring to the fridge and check all connections for loose or corrosion

    I know a marine electrician that has been working on boats all his life as its a bit to complicated for me
  13. New fridge on. Start up

    Yes I understand what your saying ,why did the fridge not cut out when the voltage dropped down below the cut out point very strange never thought of that one PS the next time I am on the nb I will take a video of what happens , I am not connected to shore line all the time only when I want to charge the battery's once a month .Just had a thought I am going to put a volt meter where I have connected to the fridge to the wires from the control panel and see if I get a voltage drop from there
  14. New fridge on. Start up

    The wires from the back of the new 12 volt fridge are the same size as the wires running to the fridge from the control panel ,and the voltage drop is only for one second until the fridge starts up i can live with that
  15. New fridge on. Start up

    Took a picture of my control panel and you can see from the picture there is a switch for my fridge so it runs through the switch marked fridge when I turn it off the fridge goes off so must be right
  16. New fridge on. Start up

    Fergot to mention on the boats control panel with all the boat electrical things and all have what they work like horn lights there is about 20 and on is for fridge so must be right or why is it there ?
  17. New fridge on. Start up

    Had a Marine electrical engineer to have a look at the fridge and control panel and he said it's just fine safe as houses , and he checked all the electrics as well all ok
  18. New fridge on. Start up

    That's what I was trying to say but some people might have misunderstood me ,been to the boat again this afternoon to check on fridge all working fine only set the fridge on number 1 fridge been on for about 15 hours friezer working good , and inside fridge nice and cool ,check battery power and still reading 12.7 so not using much power to run it ,I have got a solar panel on the roof glad I made the switch from 240 to 12 love it
  19. New fridge on. Start up

    Not sure I don't on how to check it was like this from new ?
  20. New 12 volt shorelline fridge

    Hi all we have just bought a new 12 volt fridge for our narrow boat ,as we have a 240 one running through a 3,000 watts inverter and going to fit it today ,the question is do I have to leave it when I have wired it up to settle or just turn it on straightaway thanks
  21. New 12 volt shorelline fridge

    All sorted new 12 volt fridge in and working ,wired it up and put in place left it over night turned on next morning working fine ,just bought a new 12volt avtex tv and avtex aerial fitted them so now all 12 volt on the boat will not have to run the 3,000 watts inverter which took a lot out of my battery's
