    Charging trolling battery on the go....

    Hey folks,

    Can I hook up a battery charger between my generator and my trolling motor battery while it's in use?

    If so, any words of caution? (Damage to the battery, charger, trolling motor, etc?)

    Thanks!

    No. Use a converter

    Running a charger while you're running the motor will fry the charger.

    10 amps is the most recommended for a deep cycle battery. Most small generators put out at least this much.

    Some people will say a converter will fry the motor, it's not so much the converter frying it as much as it is frying cause you can run wide open for hours at a time. As long as you run a battery between the converter and troller you'll be good to go
