Charging Batteries

Question

cray

Is it ok to charge a battery using the trolling motor plug and running the current back through the fuse and into the battery? I used this system without any problems at first, but now i'm getting a lot of "fault" codes on the battery charger and cannot get a complete charge. When I hook directly to the battery it works just fine.

In general It's fine to do it that way. I'll bet your automatic charger is reacting to either a poor connection somewhere (loose or corroded) or to the voltage drop that happens between the battery and the TM plug (regardless of the quality of the terminal connections). You can easily have a voltage drop of a few tenths depending on wire length, wire size, and quality of terminal connections.

I agree with jtroop, sounds like there is a poor connection somewhere along the line when you're using the plug setup.

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
