Deep cycle batteries

5 posts in this topic

What kind of a life exectancy should one have for a deep cycle battery?

It seems like I just got mine and I thought I had taken pretty good care of it, but it is is not holding a charge for nearly as long as I would like it to. I checked the top and it turns out I bought it four years ago. Time flys, but I would hope it would last longer than that.

Does anyone know if I can breath new life into it????

Thanks

Put a fork in it Bob, it's done! 4 years is a good long life for a battery, you indeed took good care of it if it lasted that long.

Thanks Fisky -

How's fishin up there these days? I was going to bring my wife up to Birchdale on Sunday but it is supposed to be COLD. I thought I'd wait a couple of weeks (til the next time we can go) and give it a whirl then - if it's not to bad.

Fishing has been so so to poor from folks I've spoken with. I was out last Wednesday by the airport and we did okay, not alot and nothing big but we managed a few in the 24 inch range, and I kept 4 eaters. Saturdays trip got cut short on account of a very cold 9 year old in the boat, yes indeed the weather went south on Friday nite! The 2 hours or so we fished was slow for us and there were'nt too many nets flying around us at all. Spoke to a friend tonite in the Piggly Wiggly who fished west of Vidas in and around those few deep spots on Saturday and he said it was horse puckey there too. His kid caught a 47 inch Sturgeon so that at least happened. He said it was jam packed with boats there that day and nothing was really being caught. Shaping up to be the worst fall ever in my memory! Cold is forecast for the next 10 days too, this could lead to an excellent bite if the weather moderates a bit after that. Zone 2 rifle season timeframe is about my favorite time for the big girls anyways, that Sunday after opener has been very good to me in years past. This cold snap is making me think a little icey....dicey! I figured you and the Mrs. might have to call off that romantic fishing weekend on account of this weather! I will have to wait it out as well, seems I'm colder in a boat in the fall versus the early spring for some reason??? Thin skinned after summer I spose. We should see some kind of warm weather after this passes, seems we usually do anyways. Let me know if you do decide to shoot on up and I'll let you know what I know you know.

If all goes as hoped I'll be out for some trout fishing instruction from you this year at Burntside as well.

Take care Bob....Fisky

Thanks Buddy,

Boy I sure hope you make it over for the Burtside Bash. Yer welcome to bring a guest or two and share a room with me if you'd like. Again, I'll bring a sled for you if needed.

The wife has me going to the dinner theater and Mall of America this weekend instead of fishing. I guess it's a two way street ey smile.gif. (Won't be bad though - kidless road trip grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif ) At least I'll get to see the new Gander Mountain in Forest Lake and maybe find that trolling rod I'm looking for.

Later - The Doc

    • 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.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
