Wind Generator Problems
I am not sure about this appliances that place high loads on the system. Here is s what happened. After a recent cruise my wind generator seemed to bombed out. It had been running perfectly for nearly a year.
The only additional thing I have added is a pop up toaster and a cappuccino machine for the wife. Both of these draw nearly 40 amps out of the system sometimes more. I always run the engine so the alternator can supply most of this charge. The batteries are AGM all same type, total 300 ah. I turn to both when I am going to use a lot of amps. (I am currently installing another 3*150ah AGM batts)
The Airex is still in warranty but I am going to bench test it myself before sending it off. My question is could the unusually high surge associated with a pop up toaster have any thing to do with the Airex Wind Generator bombing out? I have surge protectors on the batteries i.e. to help protect against lightning or shorts, but should I do something else?
