On-Board chargers



Was looking at some of these in Cabelas, but couldnt figure out how they worked. Do you just hook them up to the battery and that's it or do you have to wire it to the motor, and use the motor as the actual charger. I noticed that they have the wires that go to the batteries but also have a thick guage wire comming out the other side, but couldnt figure out what that was for.

Also saw a wiring harness or something that charges your batteries off your truck battery while driving down the road. It hooks up through the trailer wiring harness. I think it is called Gorilla wire or something to that effect. Anyone have any feedback on these things.

There are two types of the stayncharge systems. If the batteries in the boat are not hooked in series the original harness is all you need and yes it is chaged by the tow vehicle power. The gorilla can charge batteries in series on the road or if you have the right outboard you can charge on the water too. Good luck
