|Posted: Fri Feb 23, 2018 4:10 am Post subject: Yesterday, I just had my first electrical system failure...
Update: I completed the problem determination procedures for the LR3C
regulator and called the results into B&C. They said it looked like the
LR3C failed and that it could be repaired with quick turnaround.
I chose to buy new due to the hard to access location I mounted my units
in. Once I swap them, I'll send the old one in for repair and keep it
as a spare.

...and it was completely a non-event with my Z-14. After takeoff from
Pittsburgh's KAGC and in the soup associated with the cold front
between me and my destination in NC, one of my low voltage lights lit
up. I looked at the voltage readings for each bus, it was immediately
apparent I was running down the battery on bus2. Nothing else seemed
amiss. So I cross connected the 2 buses, the voltage light went out
and flew on for another 1.3 hours. I landed with 2 charged batteries,
everything else working but no charging available on bus2 connected to
the 20amp alternator.
Problem determination begins tomorrow following the troubleshooting
procedures for the LR3 controller. I will report back.
