Stay n' Charge

9 posts in this topic

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

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
