Best way to Charge a 24 volt system for my trolling motor Batteries

7 posts in this topic

Just bought my 1700 explorer not sure if I should put in a 2 bank system or should I just charge the batteries one at a time... Which way is the best to go? Or can you charge them when they are hooked together?
Thanks for any help I can get. Dealer wanted to put a 2 bank system but wasn't sure if it was the right way to go.

Two bank charger is the way to go. Without one you would have to disconnect the batteries to charge. You can't beat a two bank charger, when all it entails is plugging in one cord.

I wouldn't even be afraid of getting a 3 bank. 1 for each of your trolling motor batteries and one for the starting motor. Usually not needed but I have mistakingly left my power button on and have had my starting battery get really drained down. If you have the 3 bank it will charge all batteries by just plugging in a cord. If not a 3 bank I wouldn't go without a 2 bank for the trolling motor batteries.

Looks like I'll have to try to talk my wife into letting me spend some more money on a 2 bank system. She thinks I don't need one. So if I can show her the replies and the right way to do things she might see the light.... Thanks again

LOKK AT THE STAYNCHARGE SYSTEM ON THIS SITE.
YOU WILL HAVE MORE CHARGED BATTERIES AND YOU WILL NEVER NEED TO PLUG YOUR BOAT INTO AN AC OUTLET AGAIN AND YOU WILL SPEND ALOT LESS MONEY. GOOD LUCK AND STAY IN CHARGE

Dual Pro makes a model called the SE Extreme that I purchased. It is a 2 bank, 10 amp per bank system that will also charge your trolling batteries from the engines alternator once the cranking battery has reached its optimum voltage. It's great for a long day fishing as you can cruise around and charge them if you get low, great on big water such as LOW, etc. I haven't run out once and I've put in some long days. It runs on 12 or 24 volt systems. It costs 279.99 and has a 3 year warranty. As far as I'm concerned, I would get nothing else and its a great price.

THE STAYNCHARGE GORILLA UNIT THAT THIS SITE SALES A A REALLY LOW PRICE DOES EVERYTHING THE DUAL PRO DOES PLUS ALOT MORE FOR ABOUT $100.00 LESS. THE STAYNCHARGE GORILLA WILL CHARGE 24 OR 36 VOLT BATTERIES WILL YOU TOW THE BOAT BACK AND FOURTH TO THE LAKE AND CAN BE WIRED TO CHARGE ON THE WATER. DON'T TAKE ME WRONG THE DUAL PRO'S SEEM TO DO WAHT THEY SAY BUT THE STAYNCHARGE WILL DO EVERYTHING IT CLAIMS AND MORE. MAYBE THIS WILL HELP, I JUST GOT BACK FROM COLORADO AND PICKED UP RON SEELHOFF AS A USER OF THE STAYNCHARGE GORRILA. RON IS THE WINNEST WALLEYE PRO OF ALL TIME AND HE DOES NOT JUST PROMOTE ANYTHING.RON LIKED THE STAYNCHARGE PRODUCT THAT WE WENT TO NEBRASKA AND SHOWED IT TO CABELLA'S AND NOW THEY ARE GOING TO START CARRYING THE STAYNCHARGE PRODUCTS. WE ALSO HAVE HAVE A THREE YEAR WARRANTY. HOPEFULLY YOU WILL CHECK IT OUT WITH RICK AND THE STAFF AT THIS SITE AND WE WILL WORK TO TAKE CARE OF ALL YOUR CHARGING NEEDS. GOOD LUCK

    • Ever notice how the politically bias media does everything it can to keep you voting for one side or another, can't let any 3rd parties in because the powers that be lose control. They are doing an amazing job with our minds that is for sure, both sides.
    • I would regulate the drugs just like alcohol, pretty easy actually. Now we would have to draw a line in the sand on what drugs are legal and which to keep illegal, we can't use public opinion for this because that is what got us in trouble in the first place. There have been numerous studies on drugs that at least give us an idea on how dangerous they are, things will get a little confusing because some legal drugs now are the most dangerous but there is no reason to go backwards with those drugs because we have already been there and it didn't work. I can't possibly cover every detail in a post so I am guessing you want to know which drugs to make legal and which should remain banned.

      Lethal dose chart, one could make a case for drawing a diagonal line to the right of caffeine.


      This chart can be a little deceiving because obviously some drugs that are used more than others but it tells an interesting story none the less.


      Another physical harm chart, these may or may not work but again just a guideline on drugs we could consider for legalization.
    • Anyone have one?  Last year they ran them on sale for $200 at the local farm n fleet.  That happens again i might have to gets me one!
    • Before anyone goes out and buys an ION....     Also Dewalt has a 9ah battery now too.   http://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-FLEXVOLT-20-Volt-60-Volt-Lithium-Ion-9-0-Ahr-Battery-Pack-DCB609Y/300610594?cm_mmc=Shopping|THD|G|0|G-BASE-PLA-D25T-PowerTools|&gclid=CjwKEAiArbrFBRDL4Oiz97GP2nISJAAmJMFah6JUW7Wlbuw6Pzzf6CZFbYHwv3JOUaeQnfyiJpPemhoCm_Xw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

    • So should I get a reality show first? Trust me the two parties are going to great job of taking themselves out. I am also unelectable with the current mindset the voters have so don't worry about me.

      In other news who needs Russia when the DHS is trying to hack our elections? Sure they might have been just been looking for weaknesses but it does seem a little unsettling that the fed wants to get their hands on the state systems.

    • Please describe in detail why the war on drugs has been successful and why we should continue with the same policies we have had for the past 3 decades or so.    I am really wondering what the timeline is for these policies to start working.
    •   If you use Prohibition as an example, speakeasies turned into bars and nightclubs, and bootleggers turned into pimps and politicians.  So that option for drug dealers is still open.   Of course if prostitution was legalized, about the only thing left would be to get into politics, so I guess some of them might have to turn to more honest professions like drug counseling or working for the FDA....   Drug stores could still operate under the eagle eye of the FDA and federal revenuers, and keep us all safe.   The big question is what would all the Carrie Nations of the world do?                                        
    •   The Republican party was originally formed as an opposition party to the Federalists, so now that the DNC and the RNC are both federalists, there is still room for a true republican party.
    • Is it happening this year?
