Batter Charger - Locations

Recommended Posts

Murphy8166

Boat is a 23lsv from 2015 and I got a new Pro Mariner battery charger over the holidays and wanted to mount it in a fairly discrete location.  Does anyone have any photos of how they mounted one underneath the big observers seat cushion  maybe even some ideas on where to route the plug.

Thanks!

Out of the way behind the battery boxes, install by @MLA

Mine is just behind the flip up observer seat, and I just run the cord out that way since I want that seat open when the batteries are charging for better ventilation.

Another view, plus where he located the shore plug is super easy access in the rear hatch.

Eddie - that is great install!

Maybe @MLA will share how he extended the AC plug to run the distance to Marinco receptacle.

On my '10 boat, I mounted the charger where OldJeep did. For the plug, I ran it to the walk through pocket. My '16 had the Perko mounted in the pocket, not sure where your's is on the '15.

The most cost efficient way is to just buy a 25ft extension cord. Plug it into the charger's AC with some dielectric grease in the terminals. Cut the extension cable to length and wire the three leads to the shore power outlet. Now, there are a couple styles of outlets that dont require splicing stripped leads to it, they just pinch down on to your male AC plug. I dont like these. Ive found them to not hold well and the male plug will push out the back when you plug in your extension from the house. I like the Mainco outlet best.
