Re: When charging- Engine on Forward or Neutral?
Just to round-out this discussion, at anchor I charge with the transmission in reverse. It keeps a load on the diesel. I keep a good watch during this process.
I set my anchor with at least 1500 rpm in reverse. If my anchor drags while charging, it is not properly set.
