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.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
