Lights on Pontoon

7 posts in this topic

I purchased a power inverter that plugs into the accessory outlet on my pontoon and strung some lights around the canopy. It is really nice for cruising at night, but the problem is that it drains the battery too quickly. You have to keep the rpm's up while you are in motion or the low current warning comes on. It would also be nice to be able to have them on when the motor is not running.

I suppose adding another battery would just give me a little more time and a generator would be overkill. Has anyone dealt with this before?

Just a thought, can you get a after market suped up alternator? I know they make them for cars and those guys who have speakers on wheels.

why didn't you just use 12 volt lights? that converter is going to drain that alternater down. they draw alot of amps.

Thanks. I will check out the 12v lights. I usually do things the hard way.
