So when i plug my three bank charger in the lights flash for a split second, then shut off, but it continues to hum. I just replaced a trolling battery today right before this started. Anybody have any experience with these things?

You should individually charge each battery to bring them all up to snuff, if you replaced only one battery the other battery will bring it down accordingly.

I'd suggest you double check that all of the cables are connected to the correct battery and terminal. Beyond that, I recommend calling Dual Pro. They have great customer support.

Check the voltage on the charging leads to be sure but last time my dual chargers (not a Dual Pro) lights flickered then started humming the unit was shot.

If the heatsink is getting REAL hot then it's probably shot. Hard to tell this time of the year though with the heat.

units bad or the wires are not connected properly, I had a dual pro and dump it cause it was junk and 1 day out of warrenty they wouldnt replace it. had to buy one bought a cul-m-rite on Nitros recomendation, I wouldnt own anything else.
and I bought one on Delw's advice a couple weeks back. Now it is too soon to pass judgement yet but i like what I invested in so far. Easy to install and lighter and smaller than any other charger out there that I have seen thats for sure. charges batts quickly too

Thanks again Delw.

I must have caught them on a good day....I thought I had a charger problem on my old skeeter. It was 2-3 years out of warranty and they offered to replace it for free even though they didn't think the charger was my problem! I did some more trouble shooting and called them back to cancel the replacement they were going to send out. Have talked to them 3-4 times and always great service.

I don't know anything about the Cul m Rite chargers, but hear good things.

Yeah dude Dual Pros are the standard across the nation....I had one die that was 5 years old and they charged me like 100 bucks to replace it....not bad for a 5 year old charger...

The Cul-m-Rites are nice, but the Dual Pros charger faster....15 amps per bank vs 10 for the Cul-m-Rite...nice to have 15 for Group 31 batts...

My charger died and I replaced it just today with a Stealth unit. I have 3 red lights that stay on. I know one is supposed to but not certain about the others. The techs won't be in till Monday. Do any Zoners know about the other two lights? The unit is pretty pricey and I'd hate to find I wired it wrong and possibly fry it. Suppositly it should charge all 3 batteries during a twenty minute run.

I have the Stealth1 too. Do you have both the AC and DC chargers? Steady red lights mean the batteries don't have a full charge. If you have the AC charger, and plug it in, all of the lights will turn green with a full charge. I charged everything with AC when I first got it, and haven't plugged it in again since then. I didn't get their voltage gage (wanted to much for the thing), so I can't monitor everything from the console, but I haven't worried about power for my TM since I installed it, as the TM batteries always seems to have a full or almost full charge. It's like magic!

I do have both units.I have one red and a green on top. Maybe one of my batts is bad. I"LL get a volt meter and check em out. The voltage gage is $100 I didn't order it but can see it may be worth the $. According to thier site you should always have a red light on to show the unit is set for 24v. If not it is set for 12 or 36v. That light is on the front not one of the top ones (four?) that show the charge status. Do you use a batt switch to isolate the starting and trolling batteries? It is recommended in the manual. Once set up everything else is supposed to take care of itself. These things would be really neat for a camper or motorhome no need to haul around a big ole generator.

I wired my Stealth exactly the way the manual showed for three batteries on a 24 volts system. I think it was the first diagram in the manual that I used. I didn't buy their volt meter because I have a Fluke DVOM.
I checked everything with my meter three times before I made the final hook-up, following the instructions in the manual exactly. The hardest part for me was building a mount to put it on since I didn't have any walls in the battery compartment to use.
