You are the man. I often start my engine if I will not be sailing for more than a week. I try to remember to disconnect the shore power but sometimes I forget. I have not experienced a problem, but this make sense to me. I will be sure to incorporate shore power disconnect prior to engine start in the furture. Thanks so much for your post.

The optimist expects the wind. The pessimist complains about the wind. The realist adjusts the sails.
