battery charger

10 posts in this topic

MinnKota --

Do you guys like the Kota brand on-board charger? I got the Dual Pro from Skeels last year and it was a great one.

Now I have to get a new one because of the whole new-boat thing.

Which one do you guys use and why?

Some say to stay away from the 20 amp per cell trickle because it will kill your battery.

Hey Da-hitman I would maybe put this under Expert/Equipment, it seems that gets tons of hits per day and I think you would some answers quick, sorry to say not everyone checks the DL forum.

Minn Kota's are fine, 10amps would be sufficient. Dual Pro makes a nice charger, but I think you'll be ok with Minn Kota.

We have the Minn Kota charger and it works fine with our 24 volt system set up for our trolling motor. I have no complants with it.

The guy we are buying it from keeps saying that the MinnKota is better and if there are problems with it they are easier to work with.

Hard to tell if he is just trying to sell that one because it has better profit levels or spiffs or what?

Maybe he just likes it better - -I don't know.

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
