What are the Biggest Electrical Draws on my Boat? - Jeff takes a look at the three basic marine electrical scenarios, on shore-power, at anchor, or motoring. How do the batteries charge and what appliances can you run. Discover how much battery capacity you have and how to monitor it on a regular basis. Jeff will look at some tips and tricks to saving energy such as LED lights and turning your inverter off when you aren't using it.
