    Battery charging question...

    We do have a battery switch on the hot side, but not a breaker. I guess a breaker would solve my concern about the charger fying anything now that you mention it... Damn boats! I swear they cost money just to look at them! That's pretty sweet Brandon but a little overkill for the duck sled...

    Battery charging question...

    So we just relocated the battery on our duck boat to the bow. The way we have the system set up now, if I want to charge the battery while the boat is sitting on the trailer, I have to un hook it from the bus bars in order to fully remove it from the circuit and charge it stand alone. Is this...

    Since you are obviously such a friend of Scott, I take it you brought this to his attention and he suggested whining about it on BD right? I mean, you didn't come here and use your third post just to complain without affording the owner an opportunity to do anything about it right?
