    Dead Batteries

    Am a new owner of 2004 Sig 290. My shore power came/was unplugged. No power onboard as all batteries had drained. I was told to reconnect the shore power and the battery chargers would kick in. After 3 days- no power. I couldn’t locate a breaker that had tripped. Am I missing something or do I need to get a mechanic involved. Thank you.
  2. Hello Chap Folks, SO, I'm pretty good with wiring and control (I am a power plant tech after all and they still let me come back every Monday hehe), and I would really like access to my AC loads on the water so I plan to add a Marine Inverter, probably 2000w continuous capable. We only have shore power available about 5% of the time. Have any of you done this? Any thoughts on placement and tying into the system? I was going to bring it in on a spare breaker in the AC panel. or install the genset flip/flop breaker so shore and the inverter can't be on at once. This brings me to the next thought........ Battery Charger location. The OEM location for the Battery Charger is in the engine bay and does NOT appear to be an Intrinsically Safe unit (certified spark free essentially), so I am trying to figure out why this is ok and an inverter wouldn't be - did Chap certify enough ventilation that USCG let them mount the charger in there? Any thoughts on this? [edit for clarity] Thanks!
