Important Charger Operation Note:
Once your new ProTournamentelite is installed and properly connected to batteries you will be
ready to plug it in.
Please note the ProTournamentelite has a built-in self test feature that will also analyze all battery
connections and batteries to determine if your boat’s batteries are capable of being charged
correctly. The self test is automatic and will take place every time the unit is plugged into a
120 VAC outlet. The self test may take up to 2 minutes to complete.
During the self test the red charge mode indicator will be flashing. When completed if everything
is connected properly and the batteries are OK and above 2.0 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 a
red battery bank fault LED will illuminate identifying the battery(s) that 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 multiple batteries in series or the battery itself may be
under 2.0 volts DC. In any of these cases refer to the troubleshooting section on page 28 of
this manual.

Operation after Applying AC Power to a ProTournamentelite Charger
Connected to Discharged Batteries
(The following example is for the factory setting of Flooded/AGM batteries) When power is applied the ProTournament
elite performs a self test of the battery charger electronics and the batteries connected to the battery charger.
During the startup test, the battery type LED will be illuminated and the red charge mode LED will flash
indicating that the unit is in a self test mode. When complete and if there are no faults, the charger's
system check OK indicator will illuminate green and the ProTournamentelite's solid red charging LED
will be ON indicating the charge process is initiated.
Note: If there is a fault the individual battery bank trouble status LED will illuminate red and the charge process
may not start, depending on the location of the fault. See page 28 for further troubleshooting details.
If there are no battery faults, the green System Check OK LED will illuminate and
the following sequences will proceed:
The battery type LED (factory set for standard Flooded (lead-acid)/AGM batteries) will illuminate.
The red charge mode LED will change from flashing to solid red indicating the charger has started its multistage charging process.
When the charge process is approximately 80% complete the red charge mode indicator will turn off and the
amber conditioning LED will turn on indicating the conditioning mode until 100% is achieved.
At 100% charge completion, the red charging LED and the amber conditioning LED will be off and the green
auto maintain LED will illuminate indicating your batteries are fully charged.
Selecting a Charging Profile & Understanding Battery Types
Your battery charger is equipped with a user programmable battery type selector that is factory
set for standard Flooded (lead-acid) / AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) batteries.
To set your charger for HP AGM 1 or HP AGM 2 simply remove the black programming cap
and replace it with the appropriate HP AGM programming cap. The blue High Performance
AGM 1 cap is recommended for pure lead AGM batteries like OPTIMA Blue Top Marine
Batteries. The red High Performance AGM 2 cap is recommended for pure lead AGM Batteries
like Odyssey Marine Batteries. Any time you reprogram or change the cap, apply marine
silicone to the threads of the cap being installed.
Understanding Battery Types & Charger Settings
There are three primary types of batteries in the professional marketplace today; standard Flooded
(lead-acid), AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) and High Performance AGM. Traditionally, the most common
type of batteries used are Flooded (lead-acid) batteries. Shown below are ProTournamentelite’s 3
performance matched charging profiles at absorption and maintenance levels.

and should be mounted with extruded fins placed horizontally.
Always mount your ProTournamentelite in a compartment area that can be properly ventilated
during use.
Do NOT mix battery types on-board. All batteries should be of the same age and in good
operating condition.
Do NOT make any electrical connections to the ProTournamentelite or batteries until the
following steps are completed:
10 Easy to follow installation steps:
1. Select a mounting location that allows for free air ventilation with a minimum of 8 inches of
clear unobstructed space around and in front of the battery charger. Open all battery and engine
compartments and ventilate for at least 15 minutes before starting the installation of the charger.
Confirm all battery cables can reach each of the batteries.
5. Prepare each battery in advance by cleaning each terminal post with a wire brush until a
shiny surface is obtained.
6. 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 positive (red) cable. In addition, there are fuses in all but one of the
negative (black) leads. These fuses protect the charger and output cables in the event of a
wiring short. 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.
7. Connect the DC output cables as illustrated on pages 16-24. 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.
Do not install charger on carpeted, upholstered, vinyl, or varnished areas. Be sure to place the ProTournament
elite in an accessible area where all indicators are viewable. Install this unit on a hard surface.
Note: For installations requiring an extension of the DC battery charger cables, please call or visit
your retailer or dealer to purchase ProMariner’s 5 foot or 15 foot battery charger DC cable extenders.
Our innovative cable extenders are properly fused and do not require any cutting or stripping of
wires. If you have any problems locating this accessory call ProMariner at 1-800-824-0524.
2. Using the ProTournamentelite charger as a template or the enclosed paper template, mark
the position of each mounting hole. Insure the mounting screws will not puncture or protrude
into a live well, a fuel or oil tank or the bottom of the boat.
3. Using a 1/8" drill bit, drill pilot holes in the (4) marked locations as described in step 2.
Apply a silicon sealer in each of the mounting locations to waterproof the screw holes.
4. Position the charger over the mounting holes and secure with a power screwdriver
by installing 4 stainless steel #10 screws. (mounting screws not included).
1/8" pilot hole w/ silicon sealer
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Confirm the surface you will be
mounting the charger to is adequate
in strength and thickness to hold the
ProTournamentelite in place with the
mounting screws you have selected.
Maintain an obstruction free area of
8 inches around the ProTournament
elite On-Board Marine Battery Charger
For aluminum boat installation we recommend installing your ProTournamentelite Charger
on a wood or fiberglass panel and not directly on the aluminum hull.
Important Note: Your ProTournamentelite charger will not operate properly if it is not connected
properly to each battery. Reminder, The ProTournamentelite and 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
ProTournament240elite 3 Bank charger must be connected to 3 individual 12V batteries, as
illustrated on pages 16-24. Simply choose the illustration that has the same number of charger
output bank cables as your ProTournamentelite Battery Charger in hand and wire exactly as
shown (choose the illustration that matches your application) for proper charger operation.
8. Make sure all DC connections are correct, tight, and free from corrosion.
9. 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.
10. Connect a heavy duty UL approved extension cord to the battery charger first. After connecting
the extension cord to the charger, proceed to plug the extension cord to a nearby 120
VAC 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. View the LED indicators.
4 Steps to Wire your ProTournament elite Charger Correctly
STEP 1: Simply choose the illustration that has the same number of charger output bank
cables as your ProTournamentelite Battery Charger in hand and wire exactly as shown (choose
the illustration that matches your application) for proper charger operation.
STEP 2: Do not remove your batteries series or parallel jumper cables that interconnect
batteries to each other. ProTournamentelite Chargers are designed with isolated outputs
and series or parallel jumper cables do not have to be removed.
STEP 3: Your ProTournamentelite charger will not operate properly if it is not connected
properly to each battery. Reminder, the ProTournament elite and 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 three bank ProTournament240elite 3 Bank must be connected to 3 individual
12V batteries. As Illustrated on pages 16-24. Select your battery / trolling motor
configuration for the specific wiring illustration needed for your charger.

STEP 4: Incorrect wiring will result in reverse polarity or high reverse voltage, in the event
this happens, the ProTournamentelite 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) and or
the (high reverse DC voltage caused by taking one bank cable and spreading it across two
batteries) is corrected, using the wiring diagrams as shown on pages 16-24. In the event
of a reverse polarity connection, an improper battery connection or if an output is not connected
to a battery the appropriate red battery bank trouble LED will illuminate identifying the battery
and wiring connections where a fault is present. See page 28 for further details.

Charging your Batteries
Optional ProTournamentelite Charge Status Remote
The ProTournamentelite is designed to charge, condition, maintain and recondition your
batteries. Please follow these steps each time you use your ProTournamentelite charger:
See your local dealer or retailer for the ProTournamentelite
Charge Status Remote. The tri-color remote indicator is easy
to install to the twist lock quick connector cable pre-wired on
ProTournamentelite Chargers. The innovative design has an
LED indication of charge status as well as an illuminated halo
corresponding to the current charge mode (red for charge,
amber for conditioning and green for ready)
1. Open all battery compartments and ventilate for at least 15 minutes before applying AC
power to your charger. While charging your batteries make sure to keep your battery
compartment open allowing for free air ventilation.
2. Make sure all DC battery connections are tight and clean. Follow battery manufacturer's
recommendations for battery cell caps. (loosen caps if applicable).
Once your new ProTournamentelite is installed and properly connected to batteries you
will be ready to plug it in.
3. Connect a heavy duty UL approved extension cord to the ProTournamentelite charger first.
After connecting the extension cord to the charger, proceed to plug the extension
cord to a nearby 120 VAC GFCI protected (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt) outlet.
4. Assuming your batteries are discharged and your ProTournamentelite is factory set for
standard Flooded (lead-acid)/AGM batteries, you should observe ProTournamentelite's self
test mode (flashing red charge mode LED), blue AC power LED turn on, followed by the battery
type LED turning on and once the green “System Check OK” LED turns on you will notice a
solid red charge mode indicator identifying the charging process has started.
Note: The ProTournament elite has built in self testing to insure all batteries are connected correctly. The self
test is automatic and will take place every time the unit is plugged into a 120 VAC outlet. The self test may
take 2 minutes to complete. During the self test the LED will flash indicating it is in self test mode. If everything
is connected properly and the batteries are OK the charger’s system check OK indicator will illuminate green
and the ProTournamentelite will then go into its charge mode indicated by a solid red LED.
If the charger does not go into the charge mode and a red "fault" LED is illuminated then make
sure your batteries have a voltage greater than 2 volts DC present and refer to the trouble shooting
section on page 28.
5. The multi-stage charging process is complete when the green LED for the Auto Maintain
mode is illuminated indicating that your batteries are fully charged and are being automatically
maintained with (Energy Saver Mode) which will monitor batteries and Auto Maintain batteries
only when needed to maintain a full state of charge.
6. When you are ready to use your boat, unplug your extension cord at the GFCI outlet first,
followed by unplugging the charger.
Optional Battery Bank Status Monitor
See your local dealer or retailer for the ProMariner Remote
Battery Bank Status Monitor. The remote monitor is easy to
install and connects directly to your boat’s batteries. Once
installed, simply hold down the "push-to-test" button and
observe the charge level indicator for each battery (up to 3
batteries can be monitored).
Note: AC power to the battery charger and the boat’s
engine must be off when using the Remote Battery
Bank Status Monitor.

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 performs self test. If
AC power is present and all connections are correct and LEDs do not illuminate, contact ProMariner at 1-800824-0524 from 8:30 am to 5pm Eastern Time. If your ProTournamentelite is within the warranty period of 3
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 and a red Battery Bank Trouble Status LED is ON solid.
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 ProTournamentelite’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 (-) = black.
Battery too low to charge - with a digital voltmeter make sure the battery is over 2.0 volts DC (if not
have your battery charged out of the boat and have it load tested by your local battery dealer to insure
optimum performance on the water.
High battery voltage input - Check to make sure one bank lead was not spread across multiple
batteries connected in series for 24 or more volts DC. If so correct by wiring to the diagrams on pages 16-24.
Green System Check OK indicator is OFF and a red Battery Bank Trouble Status LED is flashing.
This is an indication of a deeply discharged battery that may need more charging time or it is a failing battery. To
help decide which simply reset AC power and try another charge cycle. If the flashing trouble LED comes on again
after the charge process is complete, remove the battery and have it load tested by your local battery dealer.
Check Fan indication (360 models only) LED is ON after self test
With charger disconnected from AC power and batteries, check to see if the fan is blocked or foreign
objects are inhibiting fan function. If there is no visual obstruction, contact ProMariner at 1-800-8240524 for further assistance.
Battery(s) not charging, blue AC Power LED, red Charging & Battery Type 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 13 volts DC proceed with the following:
A. Disconnect AC power at the 120 VAC outlet.
B. Go to pages 16-24 of this manual and confirm your ProTournamentelite 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 center. Charger
should be in the charging mode (charge status indicator should be red). After completing a full
charge cycle, 10-12 hours or more for deeply discharged or completely dead batteries, the Auto
Maintain mode LED indicator should be green.
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.
