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

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
