ProMariner battery charger can't handle VSR?
Hopefully one of the experts around here can help me out. I bought a ProMariner dual bank charger so I could a.) recharge the batteries fully after a day on the water and b.) maintain the batteries (float) during winter storage. However it doesn't like the way my batteries are configured and won't charge.
After several discussions with ProMariner support they told me this type of charger isn't compatible with voltage sensing relays (VSR). Is that really true or does it just take a little more creative wiring?

Honestly can't say, i've never seen the need for one so i have no experience with them. Try calling the VSR mfgr and see what they say, can't be the first time this has come up.2007 Mobius LSV

It does take an extra component or two for those two items to coincide and function properly. Its something we outline in advance with every ACR/VSR and charger combo we send out. The topolgy of my circuit supports the SurePower combiner/separator. I would need to know which items you have and whether its a non-fishing-boat or other type, brand and model of ACR. Shoot me an email with the details and I'll get you a solution for your particular device.
I'm a major advocate for combiner/separators but these are generally misunderstood including where all the dominos fall. There's a ton of misinformation on the net including that generated by the manufacturers.
