I just installed one in mine, it filters your 110 that you have coming into the house from your generator and it charges your batteries.

I then bought an invertor to run my 110 off my batteries at night.

Hope that helps I am not much of electrician.

It does 2 different things. 1st it will charge your batteries and keep them charged not over charging them. It will alos convert the 110 to 12 volts. thus you can plug into a 110 outlet and run every thing in your house and charge your batteries at the same time. Or you can plug the house into a generator and do the same. I got one in my house and love it

I have an Iota converter, basically the same thing. It will charge and maintain the batteries indefinitely when plugged in. If you use your generator, it'll convert 110 to 12v, charging your batteries and running the furnace, lights and radio at the same time as said above. I have a male plug on the outside of my house which is hard wired to the 110 outlets in the house. I plug an extension cord running from the generator or home power into the house, which feeds the outlet that I keep the converter plugged in to.

Something that I'm going to do this year is install a battery switch between the converter and batteries. When the converter's connected to the batteries, it draws a small amount of juice, like any electronic device sitting at idle. Right now, I disconnect the pos. cable while on the lake just to minimize the draw, maximize battery life.

Overall, I think that having a converter/charger is the way to go, especially if you have large batteries like I do. It's not easy pulling 190 amp/hr. batteries out to charge after each trip!!

    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.

    • I replaced my transducer on my  fl 18 with a proview  last winter very pleased with it. I thought my vexilar was going bad it was not picking up my hook anymore.  Replaced my transducer with a new proview worked great last spring crappie fishing. Replacing the transducer on my fl 12 with a proview this week.
