Guest Onboard Charger Just Quit?

6 posts in this topic

My 2-bank, 10 amp Guest on-board charged just quit. No LEDs, no output. Unit is 6 years old. Any ideas as to what happened or how to fix? Both banks were connected to my 24V system. Thinking there is some fuse or re-set button I may be able to adjust? Thanks.

Call Guest, and ask for SueD. She unfortunately is on the laid off list, but not sure if she is gone yet. She is top notch and would help you.

Otherwise, on our Guest units there are fuses inline on the hot wire, but I would think you would at least still see red lights showing up. It could just be toast. Maybe Guest will have some sort of rebate for you if it is not as easy as a reset button somehwere.

Good luck,

The ones I've seen are fully sealed/potted and are not field repairable. No external fuses (except maybe in the battery leads) and no accessible adjustments.

Some OB chargers, when they detect a battery fault, will shut off and not recycle until disconnected from the batteries and from 120V power.

I'd totally disconnect it, give it a few minutes, then try hooking it up again - possibly to different batteries as a test.

It is odd that both banks would go at the same time. I would also check the plug, outlet circuit, and extension cord used to plug in. I had an extension cord go bad once, that cost me some fishing time.

If you got six years out of your Guest unit you did well. They don't last forever. Mine lasted about the same time. When they're done..they're done.

      I like to sacrifice larger shiners just for their scales.  Ill take my thumb nail and work em off in the hole and a big cloud of scales slowly make their way down.  Ive never been a fan of a pile of dead minnows under my hole.

      Fished today from 23ft-33ft. Moved 8 times. 3 guys. 2 fish. Thus far.... Case anyone else who prefers an honest report cares to hear one.   75+yrs experience with 40+ on this lake during winter. For whatever its worth.

      Has anyone been out the past couple of days and if so how is travel across the lake? Cam u get most anywhere with a 4x4 pickup?

      You might be able to get away with one and half minnows at a time, but no more.... lol
