Always learning

After our most recent 10 day dry camping trip I have learned that adverse weather and lousy fishing is really hard on battery usage.

Someone needs to invent a power monitor system that can tell how much amperage is used when the fish aren't biting.

no fish = HUGE amp draws

Lots of fish = BIG smile, no amp draw because your outside telling fish stories
"he was this BIG "


my inverter Magnum has an amp using indication on the display, above the door

I actually put the Trimetric 2025rv in about a month ago so I know exactly how much amerage I am using at all times. It also tells me % charge from full and how many amps are needed to recover to 100% charge. I am really liking it. Needless to say you are correct. Good fishing means i'm out enjoying the fishing or eating a few of them with a good beer.
