Re: On Board Charger question

You might consider the Stealth Charger, both AC and DC. It weighs about 1/3rd the weight as the Dual Pro and it will charge all your batteries while you run your big motor.

A fully charged battery should read 13.2 A reading of 12.5 means your battery is half gone. That's why your batteries aren't lasting. Time to look for new batteries Rico, I think ...
