batter charger related question....
I am assuming that shore power is 30 Amp 110V AC with the standard 30 Amp 3 prong plug. If so, you can certainly get an adaptor that has a male 30A connector (which you''ll plug in to shore power) to a female 15Amp standard household-type grounded plug (into which you''ll plug a good quality exterior extension cord.) Yes, you can get battery chargers (including marine ones) that plug into a 110V outlet (or, in your case an extension cord). I''m assuming that since you don''t have shore power aboard your boat, it is a smaller size boat, and you probably only have one battery. If so, no problem. Just hook the 12V DC terminals to the correct (+) and (-) terminals on your battery to charge. the (+) side should be fused.) Yes, you can operate 12V equipment on your boat (such as cabin lights) while the battery is charging.
