I have fitted a CBE CSB-2 'Battery Charge Manager' to my X2/50 based motorhome.

 

As people familiar with this Battery Master type of device will know, it puts the vehicle battery in parallel with the leisure battery when the leisure battery voltage achieves 13.6V (ie during charging by means of a battery charger or solar panel). The unit is protected by a 7.5A fuse in the connections to each battery.

 

So, whilst this device is energised, why don't the fuses blow when the vehicle starter is activated?

Yes. As the charge current will be less than the leisure battery then the charge voltage will not rise as high. Also because some voltage will be dropped across the regulator then it can never achieve the same voltage while it is being charged via the unit.
