I looked at my boat on my computers desktop background after coming in from raking leaves in 45 degree weather. I hate all of you Florida folks lol.

Drained the washdown pump before temps hit 18 tonight with several nights in the 20s later this week. Also, while not the boat specifically, I installed new trailer bunk carpet, lubed 3 axels/hubs and replaced one hub kit due to a bad rear seal to get the trailer ready to pull the boat out the Chesapeake Bay in a few weeks.

I have a MinnKota MK 220D On-Board Battery Charger, got it all installed, had the marina put it in a nice spot and install an extended cable on one bank. They did a nice job, or I thought so until I got it plugged in and I get red blinking lights saying the temp sensors are not working... fantastic.

Anyone happen to know what could be busted?

Changing out a pair of F250's w/2,200hrs to new DF300's. Should be in the water by midweek. Hopefully another 6 beautiful years. Someone needs to feed the family.

mbwsner - there is a sensor in the bank wire at the point where the wire splits from a single cable bundle to the seperate positive & negative wire. You have to extend the bank on the individual wires - you can't chop it off before the "Y" and then extend.... is this what they did? If so, they owe you a new charger.....

Was overseas for the past 9 days. Got home. Took a shower. Took the cover off the boat. Deployed beers with wife at my side. Watched the sun set.

Took her out with all intentions set for our first shakedown cruise. Nothing long or fancy.

Ended up spending five hours anchored ass-in to a tropical beach with some canvas up, drinking beer, listening to Buffet n' Marley, staring at my beautiful Wife watching the girls swim.

All in all… Perfection.

Just towed to my winter storage location, placed the winter cover on. Smacked her on the ass and bid her to fare well until spring!

Went down to check the winter cover. Of course it takes 3 beers to do that. Thought about great trips last summer with my wife and looked forward to more next summer. She looks good (boat and wife).

Winterized engines and genset, the last things to be put to bed for the winter.

Caught a man trying to steal the power-poles off my boat at 3 a.m...

Pistol pointed at him as I watched him do the walk of shame back to his truck!

Priceless.

No, but I did provide an extension cable, same thing but longer. They replaced one bank with the new wire (inside the unit).

I just need to open it up and check the wiring I guess.
