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

    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
    • a quick blurry shot and off they went. still trying to get them together in a good shot. maybe some day.  
    • I posted that several days ago, although if you know what interest rates will be doing over the next several years you have better ways to spend your time than posting here.    You would no longer have to work for a living for sure.     To refresh your memory, the 9.1 trillion that you and Rand Paul are so upset about would not increase the debt to GDP ratio, assuming a 5% growth in Nominal GDP, which would be 3% growth and 2% inflation.      Do you have a figure for acceptable level of Debt to GDP?  
    • Right.  Sometimes Obama wasn't Progressive enough.  Bernie was more your speed. 
    • This is America.  We have computers and printers.  You can print it and frame it and hang it on your wall.  Nothing stopping you.   In fact Costco will print it on Canvas for you.     Please, post a picture of your office with it framed on the wall.
