Charging question re: starting battery
My setup is a single engine, one alternator, external Balmar regulator charging the house bank (5 4D's) and then the start battery (1 4D) via the ACR. My concern is that the start battery is wet on the outside. There is battery acid on the top of the battery. I am guessing that the start battery is somehow being overcharged and boiling over?
I was thinking of switching the ACR out for a Xantrex Echo Charge, but reviewing past threads on this forum, my setup seems to be a common one so now I am wondering if anyone else has had this kind of experience.
The boat is a recently acquired 2011 North Pacific. The Balmar died shortly after purchase, which I then replaced and programmed for the house bank needs. The house bank seems to be performing just fine.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
