Boat Battery Charging Questions - An Easy One

3 posts in this topic

I relocated my trolling motor batteries so they were a little more centered in the boat - a project I've been wanting to tackle for quite some time - yesterday's weather gave me the opportunity to take care of it and not keep looking whistfully out the garage door. For context, I have 1 12 V battery (2 total) in each of the storage areas on either side of my front seat base. I moved them inboard which centered the weight more and freed up some storage area. That being said I now do not have access to the charging "post" of the "inside" terminal (pos on one side, neg of the other). I do have reasonable access to the actual "lug" the wires are connected to. My question, is there any reason I cannot clip the charger onto these "lugs" instead of the charging posts right next to them? I can't think of a good reason why not but I just want to make sure. Evenutually I want to get an onboard charger which will solve this "problem". Thanks for the help. Paul

Are you running 12 volts on your trolling motor? If so, I'd make a charging plug for your trolling motor plug - get an extra plug, strip the wires and connect your charger there... no digging under the deck.

    •   That's basically what Ryan tried to do with the last bill...authored behind closed doors.   That all worked out well....
    • Just make them pass it before they see it
    •   Democrats have wanted a single payer system from the start, but they don't have the power to pull it off.   The elderly, the healthcare providers and the medical profession are the drivers of the legislation, and they don't want single payer either, since they have already seen what has happened to Medicare coverage.

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • Facebook is where it's at...no thanks...
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu
