Will be installing a trolling motor (55# MinnKota 12v) on our 170 in the near future and like the sounds of the Stealth charging unit. Does anyone have this unit installed and if so how well does it work? I have a 90 hp 4stroke Merc. Am not sure of alternator output,specs say 40 amps but don't know what engine speed that's measured at. Will be using a single series 27 deep cycle battery for trolling motor.

We have one on our 25' Whaler Frontier at work that we use for Hydrographic Surveying. In our application, the survey grade depth sounder uses 24V power. Our Stealth Charger keeps the 24V battery pair fully charged while we run the sounder all day. The other option for the sounder was to run it off 110v AC power and that did not seem to be the safest or easiest thing to do for a permanent setup on the boat.

In our case, we have the "old version" of the unit that had the jumper on the outside to allow for varying the output voltage. It has worked flawlessly for more than 3 years. I don't really recall exactly what year they bought and refurbished the boat. It might be 4-5 years now?

Jerry,
I have been using the Stealth system now for over 3 years with no issues. I attached a link to a previous thread where it was discussed. Also, Danny from Stealth answered a few questions in this thread. Let me know if you need the contact information. I love the system and my batteries are always charged 100%
