Re: Battery charger install clearance?
This may not be applicable to your boat, but when I replaced my prior junk charger from a cockpit locker, I put it inside the cabin. I thought about this as a location and couldn't think of any reason not to. It is readily visible, and since I had it hardwired to AC, I put an on/off switch with a 120V outlet inline. It is equidistant from my two batteries (one forward and one aft) and works just fine. The wood battens are to allow the recommended airspace behind the charger.
