I had the minnkota MK315 on my last boat and installed it myself with no problem. Just read the instructions.

My current boat has the MK318PC - Precision Charger. I would install this model again. There was nothing wrong with the MK315 but the precision model is better.

If you need faster charge times look at the MK330 (10amps max per battery) or MK345 (15amps max per battery)

From Manual:
Do not shorten the DC output cords, as this can affect charger output.

If the DC output cords are not long enough, they may be lengthened by splicing and soldering 12 AWG (minimum) wire. Each splice should be covered with dual wall adhesive lined heat shrink tubing to protect the joint from corroding. The splice should be made between the fork in the output cable and the fuse holder. The fuse holder should always remain within 7 of the battery terminals. The maximum extension length is 15 feet. You may contact the MinnKota Service Department with any questions.

Just a word of caution on using inflatable pfd's in below freezing weather. The CO2 may not operate properly when frozen and they provide minimum buoyancy of 22.5lbs when fully inflated (Winter boots, bibs and jacket add a lot more weight when wet). See mfg warning. Stay safe.

I just upgraded my Ice Castle to a 8x17 RV Edition with Hydraulics and Galvanized Frame and couldn't be happier. We also changed the interior and put two pull out couches in the back (no benches) with a smaller removable table.

I like aluminum frames for weight and corrosion resistant but it can fatigue, welds crack. I would still like aluminum but I went with Galvanized Steel (heavier but great corrosion resistant).

I put my house down on a very uneven driveway and have no sagging or twisting. All doors operate as they should when on level ground.

After having a crank house and now having the hydraulics I would never buy one without Hydraulics again. Fast, Easy and only one pin to keep track of.

I looked at every wheeled house brand i could get my head in. I found that you could find fit and finish issues with most everyone.

I purchased/customized mine through Miilaca Unclaimed Freight.

My original one had carpet I liked it except when it got muddy camping. We now have a vinyl type floor much easier clean up.

I have an 8x17 rv edition. I was able to run everything (not a/c) needed on the eco mode. I will need to parallel two generators if I want to run the a/c. I have led lights, TV, DVD etc. I purchased the champion generator for under $500 new. I used the specs below from the mfg websites to make my decision. I put full synthetic oil in generator and have not had a problem.

Honda eu2000i 46lbs and 53-59dBA. 1,600-2,000watts.

Champion 73536i 49lbs and 53dBA. 1,700-2,000 watts.

I was out there Sunday and I found more spots of 13" than anything thicker.

Looking at the different options and was looking for 1st hand reviews on the fold down door (4 wheeler door).

Do they leak air and if they do how bad?

Would like to be able to haul the wheeler but not if snow will be blowing in.

Thanks

I'm new to the inline reel game and was wondering what people spooled their inlines up with for a panfish setup and why?
Mono, Fluoro or a braid(fire line).



I will be using the new frabill 371 inline.
