Yes, They know me quite well at ElectroMaax! At the time I bought their alternator, they didn't have a unique lithium solution. It was common at the time to program the Balmar as close as you could using the traditional…"
I have a Victron Monitor on the Lithium Batteries. Its measurements seem appropriate as far as amps drawn, amp hours remaining, voltage etc. I don't have a temperature control for the alternator (but highs and lows are…"
How do you measure the amps with a shunt monitor or a AMP DC clamp meter ? Are you sure the RPM of the electromaax is correct. (Tachometer). Do you have temperature control ?
We sold our B43 two years ago and now have a Hallberg Rassy…"
"I know this is now an aged thread, but just came across it now! I upgraded my Hitachi to an Electromaax 160A high output alternator with Serpentine belt and Balmar regulator. I put it in about 4 years ago. The install went well and…"

Recently, I was changing the aircon seawater pump and luckily found a valve on the distribution manifold (one pump serves two aircon units) that was fully…"
"Mike nails the freezer (and Refrigerator) item. Remove the woodencovers on the vents, and if they have never been off you will most likely find a carpet of dust/hair/lint. I drilled small screw holes and added screws to re-attach. Now it is a…"
"Cam, I used a wide, flat blade screw driver to pry it off. I took my time and made sure I wasn't forcing it and causing any dents or scratches. It took a little while to do but when done I had good access to the coils. One of the grills would…"
"Cam, keeping the coils clean is essential to max efficiency for both units. For whatever reason our 43 required constant upkeep to keep the coils clean. The wood grates are glued on but can be removed if you work at it using a tool that won't…"
"Hey Mike - I agree with you that there is no physical problem with the unit running. My problem is the drain on the battery. As a weekend / once / twice a year cruiser, I don’t have solar to recharge my batteries (yet). I…"
