Re: Battery alarm while moored.

Load test today showed both batteries are good.

Grrrr....



I guess the work begins....

Maybe it would be easier to stay on shore power....

Re: Battery alarm while moored.

were you in west marine yesterday with that battery?

I had a similar thing happen with my rv, it was the main breaker between batt and panel with a coroded connecter.

So what have you looked at so far, besides the batteries?

Re: Battery alarm while moored.

Presumably you checked the electrolyte level, or if not the people who did the load test did.

Go back to the EE guidance above and start looking. Keep everything switched off and start tracing wires that don't go through the battery switch.
