    Hi all fellow sailors: I have a Hunter 45CC 2008. The battery charger stops intermittently. The boatyard replaced the electric parts but it is still happening. Any advice? Charger/inverter gets power.
    Should I add an additional small simple charger? Thanks, Viktor

    How long does it stop for? Mine stops maybe more than once an hour for maybe a couple minutes to read/analyze the battery so it knows how to continue charging, then it restarts..

    Mine does the same thing with light/no load on the batteries. Once I turn some stuff on it starts right up to take up the load.

    It can stop for 30 min to one hour or never come back on.
    The electrician says it may be due to voltage spikes in the dock power supply.
    Surprisingly I have 133 V instead of 110 V. The electrician wants to install a transformer
    to make sure I always get 110 V.
    Thanks so much! Viktor
