Customer Question
Hi, I have a 2006...
Hi, I have a 2006 Jeanneau 42 DS and have had no problems with batteries since buying the boat 18 months ago. I came to the boat today and the house batteries were working fine. However when I switched over to the engine battery to start the engine I got nothing, and now the house bank is not registering on the electrical panel. Help? Thanks, *****: OK. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?
