My battery charger is blinking geen not red when I’m trying to charge it. What does that mean?


Hi Linda.
not sure if this will help you out,i found this on the internet.
Battery Charger Troubleshooter
When there is a battery failure, there is a possibility it was caused by a bad battery charger. When the charger is only plugged into the wall, it should show a green light. If there is no light showing, confirm that the outlet is good. If the outlet is good, it is very possible that the issue is with the battery charger, not the battery.
If the charger is plugged into the battery only, it should show a green light. (If you have purchased a new charger within the last year, you will not get a green light if the charger is only plugged into the battery. You will get a green light however if the wall charger is just plugged into the wall and not plugged into the wiring harness) If it does not show a green light, it is likely that the charger is not making contact with the battery. The most likely reason for this is a faulty fuse on the wiring harness. This fuse is a 2-amp automotive fuse, and it should be replaced with a 2 or 3-amp fuse available anywhere that sells auto parts. The fuse can blow out if there is a short in the charging system, or if the plug-in end of the wiring harness comes in contact with a battery terminal.
When the charger is plugged into both an electrical outlet and the battery, there should be a red light showing on the charger. A red light showing indicates that the charger is in contact with the battery and is actively charging the battery. Once the battery has reached a voltage level that is considered "fully charged" the red light changes to green. If after 24 hours the light has not changed to green there is no cause for alarm! Remember that when the light is red, the battery is being charged, and you will be able to use your system. After 24 hours or so, your battery is as charged as it is going to get, and if the light is still showing red you should disconnect the charger and go fishing. Replacement chargers and parts can be purchased directly from MarCum's website.
If you are really concerned about your battery, consider getting a basic volt meter to check the voltage of your battery. They can be bought for less than 20 dollars and will show you exactly what the voltage level of your battery is. If after 24 hours of charging your battery should have at least 12 volts (ideally 13-14 volts) and as long as it is over 12 volts it will work. If it is not at or above 12 volts you should consider replacing the battery. If your unit starts to malfunction while you are fishing, it would not come as a surprise that the voltage has dropped down to 11 volts or lower.
If the charger is plugged into the wall and battery, and you get a blinking light on the charger, it is very likely that the battery is faulty and should be replaced.
Batteries are an expendable item, and must be replaced periodically. Any store that sells ice fishing electronics will stock suitable batteries. You can also buy them at a specialty battery store, or by ordering one from our website.The batteries that you should use are the "Sealed Lead Acid" variety, they are 12 volts, and range from 7 to 9 amps. The more amps the battery has the longer it will run on a full charge. Your MarCum unit can be powered off of any battery that is 12 volts, even a large automotive or deep cycle batteries will work.

Facts about Cb radio.


a Cb(Citizens Band) radio usually only broadcast on frequencies 26.965 to 27.405 megahertz. It is for mostly short range use 3 to 20 miles range. It comes with legal power of 4 watts. Ranges average about 5 miles. Don't expect big results off this little low-power Am transmitter. A basic 40 channel radio, Microphone, and "Magnet Mount" antenna plus 12 volt Dc 5A power supply will suffice. Place the Magnet mount on a metal file cabinet inside your house. hook up the Radio Shack 12 volt 3-5 Amp power supply to your 40 channel radio, Say Uniden pro510xl or Cobra 19 plus mini compact about $39 for these types. A $20 Radio Shack magnet mount. Turn on radio an talk. If you live in the city near lots of friends who have one too. You can talk on a private channel like Ch#40 and talk all night. The waves get quieter at night and extend farther into the Ionesphere;conditions are favorable 8pm to 12am. You should talk loudly within 5-7 miles easy. I like friends nearby; who live within 3 miles of me. Don't expect Long Distance with these radios. Unless you buy a big 1000 Watt Rf Linear an Tower 100 ft. with big Antennas costing $10,000. But remember the FCC will knock on your door and may give you 5 years $10,000 fines for anything of Linear amps 1000Watts. Just stick with basic tune and adjust,power mics(Cobra sells best). Talk with friends about fishing,hunting,gardens,tools,cars,women etc. Have Fun!!!

How do I hardwire this unit for an in home use installation?


You would need to have a stable 12 volt DC power supply that plugs into a 120 VAC outlet. You can google these, and they come in quite a few varieties. The most expensive are the variable voltage "lab grade" ones, then the bench grade fixed voltage variety, and then the cheap consumer grade 12 volt 1 or 2 amp device designed for CB's and small 12 volt devices. But this will not work, because you are transmitting and could be putting out 40 or 50 watts with that thing. So you will need a good 10 amp to 20 amp dedicated transceiver power supply, unless you just plan on receiving in which case you only need a couple of amps and the cheapie will do. It's always better to have more amperage in a power supply. You then need to think about issues like back-up power with a gel cell 12 volt battery, which also would allow you to use the cheapie supply, because you would have plenty of current to XMIT from the battery. Schematic shows a very basic 12v - 30 amp supply. Good luck!

Is there a kit or process that would to jump start a Boat that uses two 12 volt deep cycle Marine Batteries?


Sort of depends on how your two batteries are connected. If your boat is a 12 volt system, then any car type booster will do the trick, or you could simply add a 3rd battery with a switch. When you stop for a day's fishing, turn the 3rd battery off. Turn it back on for a quick "jump-start" and leave it on for the trip back to dock to keep it charged.

Looking for manual or information my 1988 TravelAire Camper van. It is on a Ford e-250 chassis. Need to know how the 120 Volt system works; i.e. does it operate all lights (including 12 volt); does it...


Typically, the 110 Volt will go into a power center which should include a small amp battery recharger. Your 12 volt lights should run off a 'house' battery which should be isolated from the truck battery, yet, the truck alternator should charge the "house" battery on the road. The device that allows this is called a Isolator. You may find a manual switch instead. You definitely don't want the house and truck battery to both run yourf coach with no recharge capability. Some systems have a 'emergency start" switch which allows you to use the house battery to start the engine. All 12 volt house stuff should run off the house battery and the battery should be recharged by the truck or the small battery charger. Do you have an evap frig? Runs on propane or electricity? It needs 12 volts whether it is running on gas or 110 Volts. The 12 volts runs the control panel and the heat to make it work is supplied by the gas or by a electric calrod if 110 is available.

I am pretty familiar with these electrical systems ... I seriously doubt you will find any information on your 20+ year old motor home. Typically, the printed specs and equipment and the data is obsolete before the ink is dry because the manufacturers use what is available as they build. If you have additional questions simply click on the "add comment" or the "reply" link and I will take a look-see.

I am installinga 4548 inverter. At 4500 watts, it puts out approximately 20 amp per phase. My generater that will feed the charging current for the batteries will put outapproximately 28 amps. Is the...


Let just wait a minute. You have an inverter that is rated at 4500 watts. This spooky. The inverter has a three phase input/three phase output? What is the inverter going to be used for?

Next question. What type of batteries are you using and what is the voltage/current in series or parallel? What will be the total voltage you will producing with the batteries? What is the total current of the batteries.

Another question? What is the voltage of the 28 amps? If it going to dump 28 amps across some batteries that rated at 12 volts and 1400 amp/hrs. For 12 volt batteries with a total of 1400 amps. What you will need approx 14 to 14 1/2 DC and with 28 amps across the batteries for charging these batteries. The batteries will be gone in about 1 hour. Boil all the water out of them. When a battery starts to boil it release water with hydrogen gas (the gas is very explosive and dangerous).

You also don't have a regulation circuit to limit the amount of current depending on the needs of the batteries. Also, you don't have a trickle charger to keep the batteries fully charge when the batteries are idle.

You will also need DC regulated charger that will keep the voltage 2-4 volts above you battery voltage. Without this voltage above the batteries voltage it will not charge those batters. Batteries need to forced to except a charge that why voltage above the source voltage. If you can check the voltage on your car/truck with a 12 volt system. While engine is running the voltage across the battery will be 13.8 to 14.1 volts. Now, the current limiter is the alternator it has a regulator built into it for stabiizing voltage and current went the batteries require more current but it limited by alternator regulator
Now, to get more current out of the alternator the regulator will supply dc voltage to the stator of the alternator generator more current. More dc voltage is supplied by the regulator but the dc voltages is limit to about 24 volts. Another limiting factor is the alternator copper windings diameter---larger diameter more current, small diameter less current. Utilities systems use big mega watts generators. The maxi um dc voltage for these three phase generator would like 500 to 800dc volts for peak to peak output. There is a simpler way of doing this.

You need to rethink everything here. Also, I can help you if you supply the needed information.
I truly wish you luck in your electrical endeavors. GB you. stewbison

Blue amp light lights for 2sec


There may be more than one problem. The fact that the radio AND the amp are seeing a voltage of 7v indicates that the battery is weak or there is a bad connection somewhere in the power line.

It's also possible that the amp is defective (shorted output transistors?) and when it turns on, it's drawing excessive current. That would cause the voltage to drop more than normal. If the amp is drawing excessive current AND there is a bad connection in the power line, the amp may begin to blow fuses (depending on the reaction time of the protection circuit) when you repair the power line problem.

I was given a kenwood ts440s hf transceiver and it has the leads for dc power supply. What can I use to power this radio? Is it primarily set up for mobile use or can it also be powered for in house usage?...


To use supply the radio with 12 volts you would have to use a power supply such as an Astron which can be purchased at Ham Radio Outlet and other ham radio shops, you can get their number on the internet. The 110 AC to 12 volt DC is not the problem..it requires the amperage to make the radiois work.... You can use a 12 volt battery and use it for a maybe an hour without charging....the radio will not work with a car battery charger... Hope this helps
