My Next 12-P was installed in 1999. I am currently sailing off the Mozambique coastof Africa.
There are no error messages and its not charging my batteries.
I'm running two alternators, one to charge the engine battery and a Powerline 140 to charge my house batteries.
Engine battery 13.31V Ignition off and 14.42V engine running.
House batteries 12.6V Ignition off and 12.6 engine running.
off on running
on/off 0.0V 12.1V 13.8V
B+ 12.6V 12.6V 12.6V
Field 4.94V 5.52V alternates from 5.5 to 6.4 to 7.2 back to 5

Any ideas?` Norman

The regulator is working according to the starter battery. Is the connection to the house battery open?

On second thoughts, I best first check if the alternator is charging.
