Recently started having problem with engine battery not being charged on shore power. The Echo charger shows a blinking ORANGE light. Anyone know what this means? This started after installing all new batteries -maybe not reconnected correctly?.

You may have to call Xantrex. The manual claims that the LED can be OFF, solid green, flashing green, and red. It sounds like sometyhing isn't wired correctly causing the unusual LED display.

Yes, thanks. I did call and I will have to take out the Echo because they don't have the info for an orange blinking light, so they want the exact model and serial number.
If it wasn't so expensive, I'd just get a new one! Again, thanks for the input.

When mine was flashing, it was due to the inline fuse to the battery being out. Red LEDs can turn orange with age, too. Check the continuity or find the fuse.

Hi takepride
Thanks for the suggestion - I will check that connection again. And you may be right about the "orange" LED.
