    Product:  ProMariner ProIsoCharge battery isolator
    Grade:  F
    This product's goal is to be a smart zero-loss battery isolator.  Zero loss means the batteries receive full voltage, instead of losing 0.7 volts as they would with a conventional diode isolator.  Smart means it will prioritize the starter battery over the house battery when both batteries are low.  
    I used a ProIsoCharge for 2.5 years.  Within a few months, it developed a problem with "relay chatter" that disabled all charging.  The company provided a small external circuit board for me to bolt onto the terminals.  It worked, then failed.  Under warranty, they provided a new unit with the circuitry already built in.  That unit eventually failed.
    I removed the ProIsoCharge and installed automatic charge relays.  I lost the smarts, but gained reliability. 
    Bottom line: 
    I wanted this good idea to work.  It didn't.

    Progressive Automations for engine hatch lifts or any other lifts. You can find them on Amazon and they are based just north of me around the Seattle WA area. I spent about $160 for the lift on my 280 which was much more reasonable then the other brands I saw for about $500.

    PM me if you have any questions.
