Onboard charger and rainsuit questions

4 posts in this topic

What a combination of questions huh? :-)

First, when I charge my batteries with my Guest onboard charger should I leave the charger plugged in and charging between fishing trips, even if it's for a couple of weeks between trips?

Second, I was turkey hunting yesterday and found out that barb wire and Cabela's Dry Plus rain suits are not a good combination. mad.gif Luckly, it was just a small tear down around the ankle, is there something I can repair it with?

Thanks in advance,
Renn

Try sportsman's Goop. I have used this to patch my portable ice houses holes and was told that it works well on Neoprene waders to. I have also heard of some kind of Farbric gule that if you have a patch you can glue to the inside of the hole and I guess that works good to you can find it at most farbric stores. I would try the goop first though it should work for you.

A good charger will taper down as the battery reachs full charge. I wouldnt leave it on the battery for extended periods of time however.
A good battery will hold a charge for long periods.

If you storing a battery at a remote location for say like over winter then a trickle charger would be better.

From what I understand with the unboard charger you can leave the thing plugged in all of the time. The unboard charger will turn off when the battery is full. Most guys leave their unboard chargers plugged in all winter because the cold weather is hard on batteries and the charger will keep the battery charged up.

    • which models of striker bibs/ coat?
    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...
    • Knock yourself out. IMO, pro basketball is a terrible sport.         -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------           Here's what they think of the Gophers in Iowa.....

    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
