 I installed a XPS 2 bank charger 2 years ago, today when I hooked it up the green light started flashing? It never flashed before, the red light always came on when charging before this. I recently fished a tournament so I know the batteries needs to be charged. Any advice on whats making my charger flash green? Any advice would be appericated.

 try this, pug in the charger, remove the negative lead from the battery that the particular bank is charging, and then put it back on, that will probably reset the charger and end the problem

 Tried what you said, darn thing is still flashing. Anyone else might know whats going on? When it did charge, the charger did get a little warm, not so now. Wish i would have kept the operator's manual :>(

 Check all the connections from the charger where they connect to the battery. If one of them is frayed or has several broken wires it will do this. Just happended to mine. I cut the old connectors off and redid them all. No more flashing lights!Easy to miss if you don't look closely!

   similar problem from Scott (  3/17/2007 1:55:00 AM
 Dre, I had a dual pro that came new on my 04' ranger, and last year the red would intermittantly flash the red lights, instead of showing the red steadily. Finally, the red lights flashed all the time. I disconnected the charger leads from the t.m. batteries, and carefully tested the voltage coming from both banks, and the charger was shot. ( I also checked the lead fuses, and they were good) the dealer told me the dual pro's had diode issues, and fortunately, it was still under warranty except for the $50 deductable. They ended up upgrading me to a three bank for no extra charge. I would email the customer service dept., and see what they say. Good luck ! Scott

 Dre, when you dis-conneted the neagative lead on the battery did the flashing light on the charger go out? YOu have to be sure you disconnneted the right battery. If it was still flashing when you dis-connected the negative lead it should have not flashed at all and you disconnected the wrong lead.

 Might also check to see if you have a bad battery. Had similar problem and discovered that one of the batteries had gone south.

   XPS is nothing but crap!!!!!!!! from Dre (  3/17/2007 7:16:00 PM
 Well, I doubt its my battery since their only about 4 months old, I disconnected the battery cables and its still flashes, I disconnected the neg cables then the postive and its still flashes. I'm sure its out of warranty but not by much, I'm pretty sure I've had it over 2 years. I will NEVER buy another XPS charger again.

   XPS Chargers are OK from JimR (  3/17/2007 8:22:00 PM
 XPS chargers are great considering what you pay. If its just over two years old take it back to Bass Pro and get a new one. I know it's a pain to take out and replace but better than paying for a new one. If you want to never worry again, buy the Pro Mariner Pro Tournament 150 with the lifetime warranty, $289 plus tax. The Pro Tournament 100s are around $189 with a lifetime warranty. What type batteries do you have? Sometimes batteries sit on a shelf many months before they are purchased and this can have a negative impact. Have the cells tested at an auto parts store. Good luck!

 When I plugged in my Pro Mariner today after returning from the lake it also had a flashing green light. I unplugged it and checked all the connections and the fuses and plugged it in again. After about 2 to 3 minutes while looking in the manual the red and green lights came on like usual. I understank the XPS is made by Pro Mariner. The manual does not list what the flashing green light indicates. Hope this helps. Ron

  Mine did the same thing. I contacted Pro Mariner and they swapped it for new one for forty bucks.Mine was over two years old.I had a Pro Mariner before the XPS and it ran fine for six years with no problems.Sold the boat.I still think they're the best charger out there.

 Pro Mariner and the XPS chargers are made by the same company.

 I'm going to plug it back up for about 10 min and see what happens. Last night after I posted my message I went down to the boat in the garage and thought I would hook up my portable charger so I could fish today and guess what...My portable charger went belly up also! So before I left to go to Wally world to buy another portable charger I went to the bathroom and being in such a hurry I zipped up to soon OUCH!!!! Been a Bad day! LOL
