IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
I. PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS:
1. Someone should be within range of your voice or close enough to come to your aid when you work near
a lead-acid battery.
2. Have plenty of fresh water and soap nearby in case battery acid contacts skin, clothing, or eyes.
3. Wear complete eye and clothing protection. Avoid touching your eyes while working near a battery.
4. If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water. If battery acid enters
the eye, immediately flood eye with cold running water for at least 10 minutes and get medical attention
immediately.
5. NEVER smoke or allow a spark or flame in the vicinity of the battery or engine.
6. Be extra cautious to reduce the risk of dropping a metal tool onto the battery. It might spark or short-circuit
the battery or other electrical part and cause a fire or an explosion.
7. Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and watches when working with a
lead-acid battery. A lead-acid battery, when shorted, can produce a current sufficient to weld a ring or the
like metal causing a severe burn.
8. Use the battery charger for charging gel-cell, AGM and flooded lead-acid batteries only. Do not use the
charger for charging dry-cell batteries that are commonly used with home applications. These batteries
may burst and cause injury to persons and damage to property.
9. WARNING – RISK OF EXPLOSIVE GASES: Working in the vicinity of a lead-acid battery is dangerous.
Batteries generate explosive gases during normal battery operation.
II. CHARGER PRECAUTIONS:
1. NEVER charge a frozen battery.
2. Make sure the cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise subjected to
damage or stress.
3. Do not operate the charger with a damaged cord or plug; replace them immediately.
4. Do not operate the charger if it has received a sharp blow, been dropped, or otherwise damaged.
5. Do not disassemble the charger. Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock and fire.
6. To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect the charger from the AC source before attempting any
maintenance or cleaning.
7. LOCATION OF CHARGER: The charger should be mounted on a wall, vehicle floor, ventilated compartment or other suitable surface as close to the batteries to be charged as possible. Do not block the charger’s fan or air intakes. Do not mount the charger directly over the batteries as fumes may cause excessive corrosion. The area should be well ventilated and free from excessive moisture, exhaust manifolds,
and battery fumes. For maximum performance, the charger should not be located in an area of extreme
high temperature. The charger is not waterproof. Do not mount the charger where there is a possibility of
water entering the unit. Evidence of water entry into the charger will void the warranty.
8. CAUTION: Do not attempt to increase battery bank capacity by splitting the output of one of the banks
with a diode-type battery isolator. The diode isolator lowers the charger voltage and results in undercharging the batteries connected to it. If additional capacity is required it is preferable to add another
isolated or parallel battery.
III. GROUND AND AC POWER CORD CONNECTION:
1. The charger should be grounded via the AC power connection to reduce the risk of electrical shock.
2. The charger must be plugged into or wired to an outlet that is an over-current protected 3 prong outlet.
Alternatively, it may be routed through a separate dedicated fuse or circuit breaker on an AC distribution
panel with proper earth/safety ground. All wiring shall comply with UL recommendations, NEC or NFPA
standards and local ordinances. Never alter the AC cord or plug if provided. Any modification of the cord
must only be done by a qualified electrician. Improper cord/outlet connection may result in a risk of electrical shock.
3. Observe color coding of the AC wiring as follows:
Black………....................... AC Hot or LINE (fused)
White…………................... AC Neutral
Green…….................…….. AC Ground (safety/earth)
4. CAUTION: (230 VAC applications only): If AC input is provide from a source consisting of two HOT or
LINE leads (phase-to-phase 230 VAC input voltage); an external fuse or circuit breaker must be used to
protect both hot leads.

INTRODUCTION
The Auto Charge D Pump Plus is a dual battery system automatic battery charger designed specifically
for vehicles with a DDEC control and a separate engine battery.
The engine battery on DDEC equipped vehicles presents a unique problem. While it is desirable to
have a charger to maintain this battery in a fully charged condition, this battery is relatively lightly loaded.
It is never required to operate any of the vehicle mounted accessories and is rarely discharged. The
vehicle, however, may have multiple batteries which may be heavily loaded and require considerable
charging. The unequal loading may cause either overcharging the engine battery or poor charger capacity utilization. The Auto Charge D Pump Plus specifically addresses this problem and automatically
recharges and maintains both vehicle and engine batteries.
The Auto Charge D Pump Plus operates an 091-9-12V air compressor. With the selector switch in the
AC position the compressor runs only when the AC power is applied. With the selector in the DC position the compressor will operate when the AC power is ON or OFF. In either position the compressor
operates from the vehicle’s batteries, the charger automatically recharging the batteries as required.

II. CHARGE CONTROLS & ELECTRONIC REMOTE SENSING
The charger contains two independent charge controls, one for each battery. This allows each battery
to be independently charged while maintaining battery isolation. Each battery voltage is remotely
sensed, electronically, eliminating the need for four sense wires. Each of the charge controls is completely automatic and stops charging the battery when it is fully charged. There is no trickle charge
and therefore no danger of overcharging and water boil-off.
III. AUTOMATIC CURRENT LIMITING
The charger contains automatic current limiting for each output. The vehicle output is limited at 25
amperes while the engine output is limited at 3 amperes. This provides the higher current to the
larger batteries where it is needed.

IV. PUMP OUTPUT
The output terminal strip provides an additional output to accomodate the Auto Pump 12V, Part
Number 091-9-12V. The Auto Pump output works in conjunction with a front panel mounted rocker
switch. For normal operation, the rocker switch should be left in AC mode, which means that the Auto
Pump works only when shoreline power is supplied to the charger. With the switch in DC mode the
compressor will operate when AC power is “ON” or “OFF”. In either position the compressor operates
from the vehicle’s batteries, while the charger automatically recharges the batteries as required.
V. BATTERY SAVER
A 5 ampere Battery Saver is built into the charger. When connected as shown in the installation wiring
diagram, loads on the vehicle battery such as radios and rechargeable hand lights are automatically
switched to the Battery Saver when power is applied to the charger. The Battery Saver allows more
efficient charging by removing these loads. A Battery Saver overload indicator alerts the operator
that the Battery Saver load has exceeded 5 amperes.
WHEN A BATTERY SAVER OVERLOAD OCCURS:
a. Remove the loads for approximately two minutes
b. Reduce the load to 5 amperes or less
c. Reapply the load to the Battery Saver
No fuses are required or provided as the Battery Saver contains an automatic circuit breaker.
VI. BATTERY SAVER CAUTION
CAUTION: This battery saver output is a full wave rectified sine wave. The 12.5 volts D.C. has a
peak value of approximately 17.5 volts.
It is recommended that the loads are not highly capacitive. A large capacitor on the load terminal
will “peak detect” the output and create a voltage of approximately 17 volts. This voltage may be too
high for the component connected.
It is suggested that the installer check the output of the battery saver (when operating with A.C. Input) and determine as each load is connected that the voltage does not rise. Any load that creates
an increase in voltage should not be connected to the battery saver but rather be connected directly
to the battery.

VII. REMOTE BATTERY CHARGE CONDITION INDICATOR
This remote indicator shows the charge condition of each battery in 10 levels from “LOW CHARGE”
to “FULLY CHARGED”. This device indicates a defective battery when a bar graph does not rise
to the “FULLY CHARGED” level after an extended period of charging.
NOTE: If a battery is being charged with an external load of 1.5 to 4 amperes across it’s terminals,
the bar graph may move down 1 or 2 levels. This does not indicate a defective battery.
To avoid this, connect all external loads to the Battery Saver terminals.
Loads connected to the Battery Saver will be powered either from the Battery Saver power supply
when the A.C. power is “ON”, or they will be connected to battery #1 when the A.C. power is “OFF”.
