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

      Took my daughter fishing today. Not unusual. She's 18 and has fished with dad since she was a baby. What was unusual was her boyfriend came with us. She grew up fast. Glad it's still cool to hang with her dad. Brought home a pile of crappies to boot. All had fun.

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.
