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.

    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
    • What a treat to see a tanager.
