Thanks for sharing your configuration, pvan1. My two bank set up goes back to the time when the boat had an inboard engine. I agree that it is probably no longer necessary, but I will probably keep it as it is.

Your observation about the automotive charger probably explains the severe corrosion present on my 9.9

A few questions:

1. Do you have any problems running 20 amps of chargers on a 10 amp breaker? I plan to have a similar 30 amp ac configuration to yours and I was thinking about breaking it out into 2 15 amp breakers, one for charger and one for outlets. I have been assuming that this will limit my charger to 10 or at most 15 amps.

2. What LED anchor light did you use? Currently my boat does not have an achorlight - just a kerosene lantern hoisted on a halyard.

3. Did you install an separate AC panel for your shore power or use a breaker box?
