Re: New Balmar SmartGuage experience
I was away from the boat for a few days and when I return, the SG still reads mid 80s and the shunt is showing 0.0-0.2 amps accepting in Float. That should be a sign of Full. We head off the slip and run the batteries up and down at anchor for a couple of days. The day we left the slip, we had to motor quite a bit. When we arrived at anchor a few hours later, the SG now read low 90s. That made no sense.
Back to the slip last night and plugged in. This morning, she’s in Float, accepting 0.2 amps and the SG reads 83%.
Next move is to manually reset the SG to 100% and see what happens, next we leave the slip. Not impressed. I still wonder if it’s just not as good at Gel profiles.
