Stay n' Charge


Big Dave2

Question

I just recieved my new stay n charge in the mail a few days ago. I was excited to get it going so I went out to the truck to install it. After running the wire up to the battery, I went to install the breaker. Of course I dropped it on the cement floor and when I took a step back to look for it I heard a CRUNCH. I looked down and it was in a hundred pieces.
Well to make a long story shorter I was wondering since that part seems to only be a circuit breaker, could I use an inline fuse instead? If so, what size fuse would I use?
Maybe I could run it from a fuse in the fuse box? What do you guys think?
Thanks in advance for any info.
Dave

Dave thanks for picking up the stayncharge unit. You could do alot of things, but I would prefer you use the circuit breaker i give you with the system. Things happen and i want you to enjoy the stayncharge so if you would like let me know how to get you another breaker. I live in apple valley so let me know how i can help. thanks

I have a question about the Stay n Charge. Most of the year, I trailer my boat to different lakes. For two weeks, I will be at a resort with the boat in the water all the time. Is it possible to charge it with your system?

Jim, thanks for responding. How much would a new circuit breaker cost? Also, my little dillema got me to thinking, would it be better to wire this thing to a switch? I was just thinking that since it is a hot wire all the time would I have to worry about getting the ends of the wire in the lake water and popping the breaker all the time when I load and unload my boat? Also I started thinking about the Idea of just wiring it to a fuse in the fuse panel so that there would be no juice to this thing when the vehicle is not running. What do you think jim?
Thanks for your time, Dave

GOOD QUESTIONS DAVE. YOU CAN DO IT ANYWAY YOU WANT BUT A FEW THINGS TO THINK ABOUT. IF YOU HOOK INTO A FUSE LINK ALREADY ON THE TRUCK YOU TAKE THE CHANCE OF INTERFERING WITH THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM ON THE TRUCK WHICH WOULD PROBABLY NOT EVER HURT ANYTHING. I WILL GIVE YOU A NEW BREAKER AT NO COST. WE HAVE OVER 1000 UNITS BEING USED AND I HAVE NOT HEARD OF ANY THAT HAVE HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE BREAKER BECAUSE OF WATER. SO YOU REALLY HAVE ALOT OF CHOICES BUT I WOULD RATHER YOU USE THE ORIGINAL BREAKER. LET ME KNOW, 612-590-5833

I have a 1994 Lund ProV Tiller with a 75hp Mercury. Two batteries hooked in series for Minnkota trolling motor and 1 battery for main power. Currently have a three bank pro charger from Charging Sysyems International.
I guess I'm looking for something better. Batteries end up being replaced every two years.

With the stayncharge systems you have a few options. First you can use the new stayncharge gorilla and hook it up to charge while you are on the trailer and your charge time will go down to 45 minutes from dead to full while at idle from your truck. we are working on a extra part we are coming out with so you can charge while you are on the water from the gorilla. we can make you an exstension if your truck is close enough (40 feet) to were your boat is in the water so you can run it from your truck to your boat and hook it up at the end of the day and let truck run for 30 or 40 minutes and that will get your batteries to 98% full. either way you do it the stayncharge system is going to give you better life on your batteries. hope this helps and if we can help with nay of these things please let me know. thanks

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
