Trolling Motor Batteries Charging/Boiling

2 posts in this topic

I have 2 Trojan 27 group batteries running my trolling motor and a Minn Kota 3 bank charger charging those 2 TM batteries plus the starting battery. I noticed today once the batteries were charged, that the TM batteries were popping. Is this just the water/acid being hot and boiling? I've never had problems with these batteries and running with them all day with TM on high. Please help.

It's normal for flooded cell batteries to bubble when being charged.

Did you feel them - their temperature, that is? It's not unusual for batteries to get warm when being charged at a medium/high rate, but really shouldn't be hot, per se.

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.

      Are the catfish still biting decent out there? Usually make it up earlier in the year have not made it up yet this year but I'm looking to come up one of the next couple evenings.
