I blogged here about my location of the third battery I recently purchased. The install came with some limitations -specifically the cover for the old inverter was metal and would be quite close to the battery terminals. I could not see a scenario where the top of the box shorted out the terminals, but for belt and braces safety and no doubt the boat safety certificate I had a small alteration made that cost me two packets of biscuits to the joiners at work.
They had a off cut of plastic that they secured and here the pictures will make it all more understandable....?
I left the plastic caps on and taped over them ....
What battery ....
Back to its easy accessible tool use
I installed it and ran the engine for an hour to put some charge into the batteries. They were at 85% on Monday night, 83% Tuesday night and 80 % after watching the tv for three hours and associated lights last night. So hopefully I have a better more commensurate amount of power for Percy - or rather my needs going forward.
Hopefully you will not read of power issues again..... well until I knacker the batteries in a couple of years. Still cheaper than my OVO electricity bill I still pay at the house !
