It should state the amperage on the cover of the charger. Or at least the model number. example 1230 would be 12v 30 amp.

My friends 38ss has to Charles battery chargers, one is a 20 amp and one is a 10 amp. Not sure that yours would be the same though. It will say right on the charger itself in the engine compartment.

Yes, you need to keep a boat dwarf on retainer!
