Xantrex sucks - What replaces an Xantrex Echo-Charger?
On May 5, 2010 I bought an Xantrex Digital Echo-Charger. Actually installed it probably in June of that year. When I launched the boat this year, it didn't work. Got it home, called Xantrex. Oh, we're sorry, that has a 1 year warrenty. Nothing we can do for you. I explained that the device has been installed in a 30 foot boat, below, potected from water, spray and so on and it never got wet, but if I look through the little vent holes I see lots of rusted parts. They replied "Yeah, usually they don't rust out that fast."
So basically I paid about $120 for a charger that lasted one season. Just thought I would warn you guys not to make the same mistake.
Can anyone suggest a comperable unit?
