12V marine batteries and VEXILAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6 posts in this topic

If your vex battery runs out can you connect directly to a marine battery in the permanent. I was wondering about the amps or whatever being to strong and ruining my best friend on the ice.

If you reply please have done it before so I know real life experience. Thanks

You can.

I have a Vex hardwired in my house, off 2 deep cycle 12V batteries wired in parallel. Just make sure you have your in-line fuse to protect your best friend.

that is what I mean... what kind of fuse would you recommend. I was planning on using jumper cables in case of emergency.

I have a little 5 amp cartridge fuse, the same as the setup I have on my portable Vex in the ol' Genz box

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
