Converter/Charger

4 posts in this topic

For people looking for a simple way to upgrade your houses so they can run of a generator, I recently installed the Inteli Power 45 amp converter with charge wizard. Very slick deal, hook it to the battery and plug it in. Converts to 12V when you draw, when there is no draw it charges the battery. Has float charger for down times to keep battery fresh. Much simpler than I thought it was going to be. grin.gif

I know more people are turning to gasoline generators at their fishhouse but I really like my wind-generator. Upto 400 Watts of charging and in the winter there is always wind. Actually, I usally shut it down while fishing and then let it run and recharge the batteries while I am away. Keeps my power hog laptop running along with the satalite radio and DVD player. oh ya, and the lights too....

Do you keep your house on clear lake??? That house there is the only house that have a wind generator like mine around here that I have seen.

Yes, the ugly sea foam green one. I tried a solar pannel first and that generated enough for the lights and radio but could not keep the batteries up when I was multi-tasking(fishing & laptop).

For anyone eyeing up my toys, don't bother breaking in, they leave with me, nothing is left in the house but the coffee pot, a $20 car stereo, and a couple slip bobers when I leave.

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?

      Grindstone is stocked in the spring, I think also in the fall. Many trout survive a 2nd and 3rd year.

      I caught a bunch years ago and they were just fine. Fried hem up back then.  They have a dandy flavor.  I have a bunch more that I froze and will throw some in the peanut oil soon.
