Does anybody know where the onboard battery charger is located on the boat? The previous owner installed refrigeration on the ice box and installed a third battery. I want to check the battery charger to find out if is working as my batteries drain very fast when refrigeration is used.
Thanks very much.

Follow the wires.

There is no designated, single location for a battery charger especially on a 35 year old boat, which likely has had multiple previous owners.

While refrigerators vary, it's common to use 50 amp/24 hours depending on efficiency.
