5 posts in this topic

My battery seems to be toast and won't hold a charge for any length of time.The original is a 12v dc7amp hr.Cabela's does'nt carry one but has an 8ampdc12v. My question, is how critical is it or should I stay with marcums original?

Mel,

That battery will be just fine.

12 volts is 12 volts and amp hours is just how long you use it before it goes dead. Its rated at 1 amp per hour. So a 7 amp hour battery will last 7 hours with a 1 amp draw, a 8 amp battery will last 8 hours with a 1 amp draw. So the battery Cabelas has will last 1/8 longer then your old battery.

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
