Charging batteries in drop-down house?

4 posts in this topic

Im trying to decide what to use as a charging system in my drop-down house....Ive seen the intelli-power converters and it seems to me that these are primarily used to convert 110 off your generator to 12 volt dc. I plan on using my two 12 volt trolling motor batteries in the house and im trying to figure out if I should just get an on-board charger or if i should get the converter? What would be the advantage of either? Also If I get a two bank charger could i put both banks to one battery and get double the amps?

I just bought a converter last night on [YouNeedAuthorization] for 50 bucks shipped that way if I plug it in my lights and outlets will work till eternity

those intellechargers (usually made for campers) run your lights and all 12 volt needs and charge the batteries they have a three stage chargerin them and are designed for the deep cycle batteries the one I have has worked out much better than just charging the batteries at home with a automatic charger plus it is quicker too! and never over charges or boils the batteries

another thing that works in my house is one of those portable power packs with jumper cables. I can take it home and charge it then hook up to fishhouse, run generator through it, quick charge a battery. very versatile and lasts as long as a battery.

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
