HELP! onboard charger acting up

6 posts in this topic

I have a Cabelas prosport20plus onboard charger. It has been replaced once after one summer, and now last night I noticed that my blue power led and the green ready led are both pulsing. this tells me that the power supply is going bad. Is it bad luck or do the cabelas prosports have this track record. I also noticed the last couple times I've plugged it in that the battery type led was amber colored indicating a gel type battery for the first couple mins before switching to red.

Have you looked at the water levels in the battery to make sure they are good ? I have never had any problems with mine.

I have to say that my Cabelas on board charger has been good for 3 years now. I suppose now that the warranty is up things will change.

Have the batteries tested and if they are good you know its the charger. It seems the ones I have had last about 3-6 years and then [PoorWordUsage] the bed. I better knock on wood because mt Minkota charger is on its 3rd season.

Water levels have always been slightly above the plates in my batteries. And have always had at least a half charge left at the end of a long day on the water also. So, I think the charger is shot. besides the power led should never pulse. It started acting funny the last couple months of summer. The charge light would go out but the ready light would not come on. but then sometimes it would come on every once in a while. I've kept it plugged in 24/7 since spring. That's the way they are designed though. that shouldn't matter.

Sorry to hear about your charger. I'm not very familiar with cabelas private label brand although they typically won't put their brand on something that is not a good product.

After going through a couple chargers and hearing a few horror stories about some, I went with a Dual Pro for my boat. Had it for 4 years now and it hasn't skipped a beat. They're top of the line, it's very rare to hear of anyone that has a problem with them. I think Minnkota chargers are right up there too. Might be something to think about if you're not having good luck with the cabelas brand.

If you end up replacing your charger you might want to check out the chargers and prices on my HSOforum, the link is in my signature.

    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?

    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
