Replacing the 3 bank onboard charger
« on: June 18, 2017, 06:21:38 PM »

On my past couple trips I noticed the voltage reading on the Garmin looked a little low. Normal for me at launch time is 13.8v to 14.05. My last trip out I saw 12.6 at launch and 11.5v before I returned to the ramp.

After a week with the charger connected, I pulled the plug and checked my battery voltages. The TM batteries came in at 13.5 (which is a little lower than the normal 13.8) and my cranking battery 11.5v. After a couple quick tests I determined my 3 bank on-board charger has dropped bank number 3. I hate these unexpected expenses!

Ordered a new NOCO Gen 3. A $240 ouch!

Jim I think my friend John is going to have to replace the onboard charger on his 2014 175 Tracker also. While I was down there after being on charge all night the next day out on the water the TM didn't have much power and died so we pulled the boat and went back to his house and changed the TM battery. We hooked that battery up to his external charger and the next day we put it back in the boat and it was fine. He didn't have anything meters to check the output on his charger but it sure sounds like a bad charger to me.

Jim,  I know the feeling a couple years ago I had to replace my on board (3) bank charger in the Stratos.
It wasn't cheap either >:(  Whets the ole say "BOAT = Break Out Another Thousand"  :'(

This was my second Promariner charger and the first to ever fail. One thing that has always been a bit odd about my Promariner ProSport 20 was that it would trip some but not all GFCI outlets immediately. It never had an issue with standard outlets.

I wish I'd investigated when I first noticed it. I've been keeping up with the technology, ratings, and reviews, but not the prices. Didn't really think I'd be needing one anytime soon. Having champagne taste, I wanted the DeltaVolt but, having a beer budget, I went with the NOCO Gen3 this time around.

I have a Minn Kota MK220, it's going on about 10 years and I'm hoping to get a couple more before I buy another. The new technology in the Precision serie is expensive but if it works they are well worth the money.
