Battery chargers & inverters

Hi all, I have a 1974 Islander 30 MK II and am just starting working on the electrical system. I have a Readi Amp 8 #00592 charger and a Topaz inverter #09234. Does anyone have an owner's manual for either. They are probably part of original equipment,,,,,,,any help is appreciated,,,many thanks and happy sailing
Rick

Re: Battery chargers & inverters

After nearly 40 years it may be time to upgrade the charger. I doubt that charger will be very good for battery life compared to a modern 3 stage charger. As far as the inverter (assuming you need one) if it works and powers what you want to it might be ok.
