Question Fuzebox, Battery Charger, and Phoenix Switch Location

Installed a Stebel horn, HID driving lights, and a very cool switch assemble (stole the idea from one of Meese's replies). But now when I plug in the very expensive BMW battery charger into the side receptacle the built-in relay on the Fuzebox opens and closes in rapid fire after about 1 minute. Does anyone have an answer or do I just need to use a standard battery charger attached to the terminals? I can supply images if anyone is interested. The switch sits on the left side of the bars in a single switch housing (ASC) - very cool indeed.

I had same issue. I chose to just what you said, ran charger plug wires direct to battery and it works great with the latest BMW Battery Charger, which was a PITA to use.

Curt, at Fuzeblock, says the battery charger cannot be used with a switched circuit so I'll wire a Powerlet direct to the battery and use my very expensive BMW charger. Thanks for the info!
