    Battery charger replacement-gctid820274

    I am trying to replace my old battery charger. It is a 10amp dual bank quest charger which is hard wired to my breaker panel. All new battery chargers come with a cord and plug. From what I understand it is ilegal to put a receptacle in the engine compartment so how do I get power to the chsrger? If I cut the plug off the charger and hard wire it,it voids the warranty

    Any suggestions appreciated. .

    I just installed one of these and I had to hard wire it.

      You got a big boat, don't put a little boy charger in. Get one that has a nice float/maintain feature.

      moultdkdj has the right idea unless you don't use your house bank much

      Why not go 20 amp?

      Most chargers don't have a plug, they require a hard connection.

          I too replaced my original charger with the new 30 amp Promariner charger. It's fully automatic and I have noticed the battery fluid has not needed to be topped off as frequently as with the old charger, which was the now discontinued Promariner unit. Griff

            I have looked at this charger and the only thing I don't like about it is the fact that it's not water proof. The warranty will not cover any damage caused by water intrusion. I will be mounting the charger in my engine compartment.. this is a dry spot but it could get wet when the hatch is open, I get a leak in my water system or just cleaning the compartment. Would prefer a water proof or resistant charger.

              I agree, talman, i was planning on going with the 30 amp 3 bank. I do use the house battery alot and I also have one dedicated to my stereo amp system. I have searched the Internet and the pro nautic is the only one I have found that is hard wired.
