Fishing/Marine Electronics / Re: Battery charge question
« Last post by LANSKY on April 18, 2018, 06:38:30 PM »
      Got the solar panel in today and hooked a battery up to the controller, it powered up and gave a readout on the battery. Plugged the panel into the controller and it immediately started charging.  I only tested for an hour and a half but it did juice up the battery about 20% with partly cloudy skies.  It also has a USB port right in the controller to charge phones, IPADs ect.  So far I am glad I purchased it however I need to use it more and see how it goes.

Starts for me Saturday  ;D  Candlewood, Mousam, Great Pond, Cobbossee, Winni in next few weekends. Good thing we'll have a few weeks off after that. Jerk bait is going to wear me out.
Spent the day transitioning from an Okeechobee boat ready for New Engand prespawn mixed bags.

@tritonmike Glad you got it all sorted out! I had a feeling Napa might be able to test them more extensively and spot any problems that way. Let us know how it goes for you the next time you get out there!  :thumbup:

Oh ya.. I feel your pain. Been there and done that many times with various things. Sometimes the OCD to make everything match perfectly can get us into real trouble.  (giggle) :nod:

Without nice days to work on the boat outside I've shoe horned my boat in the garage to get it ready. I've been chipping away at the to-do list for the season and almost have it done. Thursday is first tournament so I'm down to the wire.

Last night I said let me fix that marker light on my left wheel well. Found a new set at Walmart 5$ ea not bad. I took off the broken one and hooked up the new one. 5-10 min  Easy, Done. Right... NOPE

I decided to replace the other side so they match. The new one is a hint bigger and I wouldn't want planes flying above to see I have 2 different marker lights. LOL So, I take off the working one and hook up the matching one and NOTHING... No light.... Take it off test it on a battery back and it works. Test the old one and it works. Try both again and nothing. Ended up the DARN wire snap on T connector from the factory IN THE FRAME came loose.. Now to get to it I have to unbolt the fender step and fish out the wires tonight.

BOATS... You got to love em... Figured I'd share I know we all have been there... HA
