My charger only charges for 3 min then green light comes on saying it's fully charged

You could disassemble the battery and replace only the small 6 or 8 accumulators inside. Pay attention to the correct wirings. I replace the original accus NiMh with Li-ion and another charger, off course.

I have a small 850w (max) 2 stroke generator. It starts fine but when a 500w loat is plugged in, the generator revs rise up and down...rising then falling and hence the load (a floodlight) goes dim\then...

bad voltage regulator most likely, that's a pretty small generator and a 500 watt load may cause it to work too hard, but it shouldn't vary that much in voltage

My battery keeps draining in my starcraft travel trailer evry time i put a fully charge battery in the camper in less then 2hour the battery is dead and with nothing on and all the braker off


Charge your battery, and connect it back to the travel trailer. Use a 12volt test light to make the connection between the cable and negative terminal on the battery.

If there is something drawing power, the light will turn on. Remove the fuses from the DC fuse block 1 at a time, make note of the current rating for each fuse position. When the light goes out, the last fuse you removed is where the culprit probably lies. Now that all the fuses are out, plug each one in, individually, and see when the light comes on. Look closely at the light. Some notorious items that are left on are the antenna booster for the TV, the radio (volume turned down), and lights in the storage compartment. Some fridges will have a small heating strip between the doors. This heat strip may not be turned off with the fridge switch unless it is put into storage mode.

2 hours on a freshly charged battery is signifiant. The average Group24 deep cycle battery, in good condition, has a capacity of approx. 100Amp Hours. Most are able to sustain a load of 20 amps for about 180 minutes, around 3 hours. To deplete the battery in 2 hours, is a very significant current draw.

There are only 3 things that can singly draw down the battery that quick.
1) Furnace - but you would hear this one running.
2) DC Cooling mode on the fridge. Silent battery killer.
3) The breakaway switch for the electric brakes. When the plunger is removed, full battery voltage is applied to the brake magnets. A dual axle trailer may have 4 magnets, at 8 amps each, gives you around 32amp current draw. If pulling the fuses doesn't yield a culprit, the break-away switch is probably it. Remove the plunger, and push it back in. Watch the light as you do so.

Otherwise, look at your trailer connector. If it has been contaminated with road grime and such, it can cause a partial short between the charge and ground terminals.

My minn kota turbo drains a battery in 20 mins

Your battery is either shot or the motor is pulling one hell of a lot of current! Can you measure the DC amps to the motor? That will tell you in a hurry whats' up.

Dual Brite sensor lighting. Lights will not stay on even after human motion is in place sight of sensor during evening hours. I have the switches on dusk to dawn and the on-time switch is set to 20...

I really don't understand why these lights are so failure prone and I usually return at least 8 out of 10 back to the store but I've installed a lot of them. If its Zenith brand the light may need to be reset by turning the power off at the switch or breaker for 1-2 min then back on. Then check the motion sensitivity dial if its maxed out turn it back and set it to 75% full also the photo eye may be getting light from the light making it think its daytime at night so try to reaim the photo eye if possible away from the light source that should fix most problems or 20% of them but if you still have problems return it to the store or ask for their advise. Hope this helps I've seen a lot of junk motion lights in my time they are troublesome at times.

My 15 min. Duracell charger keeps blinking-won't work...

When the duracell lights blink during charging, AT YOUR OWN RISK, try a reverse charge. Instead charging positive to positive and negative to negative, try positive to negative and negative to positive. I did this for 2 minutes. This solved the problem. After the 2 minutes, I gave the batteries a normal charge. You will have to force the battery and charger contacts to touch.

You may have a 'TEST" mode on your Generator. Ten Minutes is usually the duration of the 'Exercise' function of most units, so I'd like to determine what mode you are starting your generator in. Please comment.
