Use it after every outing and you'll never have battery issues. What kind of batteries are you running. I stuck 5 optimas along that wall you put your onboard charger.

I've got 2 blue tops

just run 2 amps and only 2 tower speakers so I didn't feel the need for more batteries

hey Kelly. it's a Promite 5/5 dual bank

trickle charges both at the same time

cuts off and back on on it's own so you can keep it hooked up thru the winter if you want

Sorry, this might be dumb, but how does a battery charger work? I usually hook the battery up to a trickle charger the night before I go out, is this ok? how will a battery charger help?

Thanks

Erik
mine is the same thing, just mounted in the boat and able to charge 2 batteries at the same time

I just have to stretch the cord to the boat...instead of lugging a charger into the boat every time

Thanks for the info, that is not a bad price, I have to replace my two batteries this year, neither will take a full charge.

I will also install this charger, maybe my batteries will last longer than a couple seasons.

I'm having a problem with my duel blue top optima batteries. They were installed by a good stereo shop last fall along with rewiring the battery selector switch which was apparently not hooked up correctly by another dealer shop. I turned them off for the winter and then put the switch on "all" and hooked up my charger to just one of them a couple of weeks ago before we took the boat out. Long story short, I think only one of the batteries took any charge, and the other battery doesn't seem to be charging even when I run the boat with the switch on all. What is wrong and how do I fix it? Thanks

I'm not sure Les, but it is my understanding that you cannot charge both batteries at the same time using a conventional charger

you need a dual bank charger

I have seen lots of posts on here from guys in the industry

I'm sure one will respond soon
