Ever come down to the dock find your batteries dead because your shore power cord had become loose and your charger was not working? Ever been out sailing all day only to find your batteries are dead when it's time to head for the dock? Are you tired of troublesome batteries and the expense of replacing them way too frequently? If so, this webinar is for you.

Dave Seidman, head of the elctronics division for Riverfront Yacht Sales & Services in Cleveland, Ohio, has over 35 years of experience in the marine industry.  In this webinar he will explain the different types of batteries available and the pros and cons of each. You will learn how to maintain and monitor your batteries. You will see how to put together a proper house battery bank and how to keep it separate from your engine start battery. You will learn how to charge those battery banks back up, using a high output alternator, Smart 110V chargers, and inverter/chargers. In this webinar Dave will also cover how to use solar panels and wind generators as alternative charging sources.
