Power Control!

Just a few things Jerry has been installing to control the voltage on the boat.
First he installed a volt meter to check the condition for the 24 volt batteries on the deep freezer that we installed last year. We have not had really any problems, but sometimes it dose run all night, so this is just a way to make sure it is charging.

Second he tried to install a 110 volt meter to monitor shore power, but unfortunately upon installation it got a short and burned up. This was the main one we wanted do to the power problems the docks have once in a while. Either there will be a total power surge or sometimes it is low voltage, like 50 volts. This has caused us some problems with some of our electronics, i.e. it messed up our television.
