Batteries and various electrical systems
Hey guys as some of you know I am notw the proud owner of my lttle 27 foot watkins sailboat that I plan to live on soon, wel the batteries died in it I knew they where old and expected this but need to do something soon to fix it. My plan is to run 2 optima blues for the engine starting and nav lights, stuff outside of the cabin. But for the house battery I have access to LIFEP04 Litium batteris and I am not worried about the use of them at all I am just trying to find a inverter/charger that i can use with these types of batteries. I am also wanting to replace the old Dc panel with a new one and I would li,e something that is a fuse block and switch panel in oneand Im not sure where to find that. If you know where to find these items that would be great or point me toward certain companies that could help me that would be great. Also I would like some advice on marine 110 or my shore power setup I would like to replace that as well so it is all new so I know that ist is in good shape before I plug in so any advice there. I have done A/C Wiring before but I know marine applications often are very different due to the corosive resedsten gear they use so any help in these areas would be great.
