Okay I’ve now done as asked now

-lease see photo

we have 12v in boat again

the interior 12v socket now reads 12.4

battery 1 is 12.4

battery 2 is 15.4

 

thankyou

re getting qualified people in, I have one for my rayburn, two of them and they were blooming u/s serious!

i did have a electrician in, gave me all the reasons why, but never turned up again!

i do beleive in going to professionals, but tired of getting let down

so yes have relied on the forum, and guess what? We’ve cracked it.

Yes I made a mistake with the 12v lead, and have proberly damaged the battery’s 

But through the forum we’ve found out a equalzor is a waste of money, it’s still for sale!!!

that we can fit a 24v to 12v transformer again info from the forum

bought and now fitted and everything seems to be working.

jusy the battery’s are suspect now

 

 

col

 

ps how many people have had a professional in to do somthing, and you end up either doing the job, or fixing his mistakes?

The only thing I would suggest now would be better connections on your 24/12 volt unit. They look a bit scruffy and it is debatable just how good a contact/number of strands and actually connecting in the terminals.
Well done Col lots would have given in weeks ago. The amount of stuff you have sorted since you have been boating is overwhelming

Thankyou for your kind words Brian.

when I joined the forum some 9/10 years ago, I was told I had a couple of years due to cancer, the forum and boating  gave me somthing to focus on.

having vast amount of chemo, 2 operations then. Life Saving 6hr op, Since then have another 3 operations, and yes at the time my wife let me have a boat to live on, and we’re still here. Still living on a boat. I do ask and have been let down many a time. In the end you have no one to ask, so you have to have ago. And yes I do get a lot out of the forum.

like many do if they tried.

 

and boy I know I’m trying lol

 

thankyou all Tony’s x 2  Alan, blizzard, Sam you know who you are, and anyone else that sees my posts, give up then and there, 😂 or get  stuck In, ending up tearing your hair out.. Lol

 Thankyou

 

Making another small donation to the forum

 

thankyou guys

Col... you’ve not finished ;)

 

I suggest you switch everything off and swap battery 1 with battery 4. I believe they’re now your two best batteries. As things stand you’re going to damage batt 3 with it charging at 15V. Don’t change any other wires around, just swap the batteries. 

 

If you really want to you could then wire batts 2 & 4 in parallel and put them on the 12V charger to see if they can recover, but that’s not urgent.

In case the battery numbers have got confused, I’m suggesting that you remove the battery that’s now at 12.8V and replace it with the removed one that’s sitting at 13V.

Now you are getting somewhere.

Hopefully they will balance out now and be 'the same'.

 

I'd just put the two that are no longer in the 'bank' in a corner somewhere and forget about them.

You can’t have them wired in parallel then.

Battery’s of the bank, are being charged as 12v battery’s  one battery per time

Saying that I will either dump these, or sell them if they keep their charge

ive had enough of them.

Ahh, ok, fine. Give each of them a 24 hour charge. Then let them stand for a few days, then take their voltages. You never know :)
