After two full trickle charges and drop tests, and a further full charge the batteries have been given a clean bill of health.
A connecting cable between two of the leisure batteries and the third was found to be of inadequate cross-section and replaced.
The battery selector/isolator switch was found to be incorrectly wired and not isolating anything!
All systems have been checked and SONFLOWER has been returned to her mooring for the remainder of the winter.
Thank you again John and Tooley's Boatyard
- The name describes my demeanour and voice! I love narrowboating and that is why this blog is mainly about the boat and our interaction with it. I have been keeping a log for Sonflower ever since we bought her and moved onto her as our main residence. Some incidents in our boating life have been hilarious, some scary and some down right dangerous. I cannot tell what will come in the future but you can now share them! The crew are an 'ordinary' couple. The Best Mate and I.
