I forgot to add. I believe people forget that they have their charger plugged in and charging and when they start their OB or IM they pop the Promariner charger. Now, is that their fault or yours? I guess the other brands I mentioned have a protection factor for that. I guess If you NEVER FORGET to un-plug it before you start your motors, ....... good luck with that.

I know of no real dealer installing them anymore. Most of us have moved on. Norco, Powermania, etc.
I have a ProMariner 1230P and have had my outboards running umpteen times with the charger still plugged in and 'on'. I have not noticed anything amiss and as far as I am aware the charger is operating correctly. I did in fact query with the dealer/installer and was told this was OK because the charger had a sensor to detect current feed from an alternator.

Have I been miss-advised ;?
