Re: Running a portable generator at an angle of heel
I connect the Honda via adaptor to the shorepower inlet on my boat. Mastervolt charger is connected to AC side of the Blue Sea Panel so yes I see 60 amp at bulk.
The 8 amp rating was from the Honda literature and must come from the generators 12 volt outlet which I rarely use at all.
The 8amp output of the Honda is at 110v, not 12v. Roughly speaking, it would be capable of 10 times the amps at 12v. amps x volts = watts.
Essentially, your battery charger is making this switch.
