Important Charger Operation Note:
Once your new Pro Series is installed and properly connected to batteries you will be ready to plug it in.
Please note the Pro Series has a built-in feature that will analyze all battery connections and
batteries to determine that your boat’s batteries are capable of being charged correctly. The
analyze mode is automatic and will take place every time the unit is plugged into a GFCI protected
110 VAC outlet. The self test may take up to 2 minutes to complete.
During the analyze process, the red charge mode indicator will be flashing. When completed if
everything is connected properly and the batteries are OK and above 2.5 volts DC then the
charger will register and illuminate the green system check OK indicator followed by a solid
(non flashing) red charge mode LED illuminating indicating all batteries are being charged.
If the charger does not go into the charge mode with a solid (non flashing) red charge mode
indicator and the system check OK indicator is not illuminated with a solid green LED then
check for the following: a red battery bank fault LED identifying the battery(s) have either a
wiring fault present i.e. poor connection, a blown DC cable fuse, the DC cable is wired in
reverse polarity, battery cable is wired across two batteries in series with a high DC overvoltage of 24V or the battery itself may be under 2.5 volts DC. In any of these cases refer
to the troubleshooting section on page 26 of this manual.

Wiring your Pro Series Charger Correctly
6. Prepare each battery in advance by cleaning each terminal post with a wire brush until
a shiny surface is obtained.
7. Run cables free from sharp objects and hold each in place with cable ties. Coil excess
cable, do not cut or shorten the length of the cables, as in-line fuses are located 4 inches
from the end of each red (positive) cable. In addition, there are fuses in all but one of the
black (negative) leads. These fuses protect the charger and output cables in the event
of a short or reverse polarity. We recommend the use of wire ties or cable clamps to
provide strain relief for the cables and to reduce the risk of damage to the cables or connections.
8. Connect the DC output cables as illustrated on pages 16-23. Make sure the (black) wires
are connected as illustrated to the negative side of the battery and the red wires are
connected to the positive side of the battery.
Simply choose the illustration that has the same number of charger output bank cables as
your Pro Series Battery Charger in hand and wire exactly as shown (choose the illustration
that matches your application) for proper charger operation.
Incorrect wiring can result in reverse polarity, in the event this happens, the Pro Series Charger
has been designed to not fail as a result, however it will cause the charger to "internally
disconnect" and provide "no output" until the (reverse polarity) caused by putting the "Red"
+ lead on a - negative battery terminal). In the event of miswired battery(s), the charger will
illuminate a red battery trouble status LED for the specific battery requiring attention.

9. Make sure all DC connections are correct, tight, and free from corrosion.
10. Locate the AC power cord in an open-air area of your boat at least 21 inches from the
charger, batteries, and fuel fill lines.
11.Connect a heavy duty UL approved extension cord to the Pro Series charger first. After
connecting the extension cord to the charger, proceed to plug the extension
cord to a nearby 120VAC GFCI protected (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt) outlet.
Always remove the extension cord from the 120VAC outlet first when charging is
completed, followed by unplugging the charger. You are now connected and charging
your batteries, and can view the LED indicators.
Important: The pair of red and black wires in 1 cable jacket MUST GO TO THE SAME 12VDC battery.
+
Important Note: Your Pro Series charger will not operate properly if it is not connected
properly to each battery. Reminder, each DC jacketed bank cable must be properly connected
to "individual 12V batteries". Number of DC jacketed bank cables equals the number of
batteries that must be individually connected. Example: a 3 bank Pro Series must be
connected to 3 individual 12V batteries, as Illustrated on pages 16-23. Simply choose the
illustration that has the same number of charger output bank cables as your Pro Series
Battery Charger in hand and wire exactly as shown (choose the illustration that matches
your application) for proper charger operation
Installation
When connecting each jacketed battery charger cable, make sure it is connected
to only one 12 VDC battery and observe the polarity and color of all connections:
Red Wire = + (Positive) Battery connection
Black Wire = - (Negative) Battery connection
The black wire can never be connected to a terminal with red wires. Only black.
When connecting to an engine start battery only connect the battery bank cable that is LABELED:
"FOR ENGINE BATTERY USE THIS BANK CABLE ONLY".
Application Tip
If your application is for 4D or 8D large capacity batteries, please refer to ProMariner's website
www.promariner.com and view our ProNauticP Hardwired Charger Assortment for a model that is
correct for this group size of batteries.
If there are more charger outputs than batteries, then sets of leads can be doubled on
the larger battery in your system. Typically these are connected to the more drained
trolling motor battery. Please contact ProMariner if you require assistance.
Note: Pro Series Waterproof Marine Battery Chargers are designed for any combination of group 24,
27, 29, 30 and 31 batteries. Each battery charger DC output cable must be connected to one (1) 12
Volt DC battery (even if batteries are configured for 24 Volt DC or 36 Volt DC trolling motor or system
applications). Most specifically you do not have to remove series or parallel jumper cables to use your
Pro Series Charger. See typical wiring diagrams for these systems in the installation section of this manual.
Note: The Pro Series must be connected to batteries to operate. It will not operate as a 12
volt power supply.

No Blue AC Power LED or Charge Mode LED or Charge Monitor LEDs
Check for loss of AC power at the 120 VAC outlet. Confirm GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter)
has not tripped. Check with a meter or 120 VAC test light that AC power is present at the end
or your extension cord. Reset AC power if it was not present. Confirm all charger cables are
installed with the correct polarity connections at each battery and that all connections are clean
and tight. Wait 2 minutes while unit completes its analyze mode. If AC power is present and
all connections are correct and LEDs do not illuminate, contact ProMariner at 1-800-824-0524
from 8:30 am to 5pm Eastern Time. If your Pro Series is within the warranty period of 2 years
from the date of purchase, you can go to www.promariner.com where you will find our customer
care return form and instructions.
Green System Check OK Indicator is OFF & a Red Battery Bank Trouble Status LED is ON.
Identify the battery bank LED that is lit, remove AC power and check the battery bank indicated i.e 1, 2, 3
(model specific). The LED indicates there is a fault present. Listed below are typical faults and what can be
done to clear the red battery bank trouble status indicator (reapply AC power after making any corrections):
Poor battery connections - Make sure all connections are tight and clean
Blown DC cable fuse - Make sure all fuses are good with a digital ohm meter
or continuity tester and visually inspect the Pro Series's DC battery cables to insure they
have not been compromised or shorted in any way.
Reverse polarity - Make sure all wiring connections are color coded and connected
properly and that each bank cable goes to one 12V battery where (+) = red and (-) = black.
Battery too low to charge - with a digital voltmeter make sure the battery is over
2.5 volts DC (if not have your battery charged out of the boat and have it load tested
by your local battery dealer to insure it is safe to charge and that the battery is capable of
holding a charge.
High battery voltage input - Check to make sure one bank lead was not spread across 2 batteries
connected in series for 24 volts DC. If so correct by wiring to the diagrams on pages 16-23.
Battery(s) not charging, Blue AC Power LED, RED Charging & Charge Monitor LEDs are ON
Confirm all charger cables are installed with the correct polarity connections at each battery,
and that all connections are clean and tight. Confirm that there are no bank trouble status LED
indicators on. With the charger on, read DC voltage at each battery. If any of the readings are
less than 12.8 volts DC proceed with the following:
A. Disconnect AC power at the 120 VAC outlet.
B. Go to pages 16-23 of this manual and confirm your Pro Series model charger
is connected correctly as illustrated in the installation drawings.
C. Upon completing B above; plug your charger into AC power and observe the LED display.
Charger should be in the charging mode (charge mode indicator should be red). After
completing a full charge cycle, 10-12 hours or more for deeply discharged or completely
dead batteries, green Auto Maintain LED and 5 green charge monitor LEDs will illuminate in
addition to the blue Power LED.
Note: If a Digital Volt Meter (DVM) is available to you, instead of waiting to complete a full charge cycle, you can simply use a
DVM and take DC voltage measurements across each 12 volt battery. As long as the voltage continues to increase while the
red charging LED is on, this will serve as a confirmation that the charger is properly connected and is properly charging.
