Stratos/Johnson Electrical Problem

Hello Randy,

Found your site and itís amazing, have a small problem and not many marinas here in the desert to do work, Las Vegas Ö

History, I Charged the system on board 3 bank (trolling 24v), 12 hours later battery dead, recharged, went fishing, started fine, stopped, fished, not enough juice to engage the starter, change batt with trolling, started fine, fished, stopped, tried to restart, just a spinning sound again, changed last batt pulled out. Went through my manual and found a few items, but not enough to go on.

1997 Johnson V6 200 VRO 21í Stratos, Have never had any major problems since day 1.

Stator, Power Pack or Rectifier/regulator, your suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Check the regulator/rectifier. I will bet it is shorted.
