Sydian, I have been looking up your Charles battery charger and i cannot find a series 8000 on their website. Maybe someone else can confirm this so i am not the only one? I did howver look at the specs on their 80A chargers and they do infact have a selector switch to select what type of batteries you are charging. This is what i was telling you about and is what i did on my boat. Since i had just changed my batteries and charger, the selector switch was not charging the correct type of batteries and so everything went funny! Check it out again and see if you find a switch. Remember, you might have to pysically open a panel on the battery charger as the switch might be inside on one of the control boards. This was the case with my dolphin charger. Good Luck!

This is the site i am looking at :

Thank you so much, Feeldavibe! I appreciate your tenacity and concern in this and I will definitely check that out. I'm going by the Azimut dealer in Baltimore hopefully tomorrow to get their take on the bilges and A/C and costs of repairs.

NYCAPT123 might be right and I'm wearing some rose colored glasses b/c I do like the boat, but I also feel that the mechanic and surveyor do not understand all of it's features or nuances, at least with the alternator alarms and bilges.

dead algae in fuel tanks is always in the bottom just like in the racor bowls.

Feeldavibe! Hi, there. Sorry for the delayed response. We bought the boat!! Big suprise and we've been on it since vacationing. We really love it. It's perfect for us. I wish we had just a little more space...but it is all the boat we can handle at this time. For now, we are keeping the battery charger off while underway with the generator on. It's on the list though of things to get working properly. We came by way of chance upon the previous owner's mechanic just today and he is familiar with all the boat's little needs. The previous owner just could not afford to keep it up properly. So it's nice to have someone who knows the boat already available to us. BUT...we have gotten all the big issues resolved (e.g. the fuel, bottom paint, professionally cleaned, buffed and waxed). The racors look great and she runs fantastically, or "he" I should say. We documented the boat as "Hyperion," Titan God of Light/Sun, father to Helios, which will be our dingy's name . Maybe we will see you down your way one day!!
