Trolling Motor Charger question...

7 posts in this topic

quick question,

Just bought a 2/10/15 amp Vector charger for my trolling motor. Just wondering what settings should I have it set to?

On the charger it says Wet, Gel and AGM. What should it be set on?

The only thing I could find on the battery itself was 27EV Deep Cycle Marine Crank@80F:840 Cold Crank Amps@OF:600 Reserve Capacity:160

Thanks for any info...

Go with wet. If you bought gel or agm the price difference is enough that you would remember exactly what you bought. I would guess that 95% of the battery's sold are wet but the best I ever owned was a group 27 gel. You could never run the battery out during a normal day of fishing but the price was a little too spendy for only 2 years of service.

Yep... I'm pretty sure you have a wet cell battery, as jimalm said, you'd know it if you didn't...

My Crestliner came pre-rigged. Still thinking wet?

Definately, unless you paid to upgrade your batteries.

Set it on wet and go with 15 amps,the charger will adjust the amperage itself as its needed. If you watch it, it will drop amperage as batt. takes a charge.

    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.
    • nw wisconee private marsh
    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
