With almost all current multi-bank chargers, you can connect all leads to the same bank and combine the amperages. Should be easy to find a 3 or 4 bank charger with 40-45 amps total.

That would be the plan. It's time for a rebuild anyway. My hubs have the gun barrel drilled spindles with the grease zerk in the end of the spindle.

Can I switch my Superlube hubs to Vortex Hubs?

I have an Ameratrail with the SuperLube hubs. The little rubber caps stay on but leak grease all over my wheels. I'd like to switch to the Vortex hubs with the screw in O-ring caps. Is that just a...

Carry a 6 inch long piece of 2x4 to wedge in between the prop blade and the anticavitation plate. That way you can torque it right and still get it off.

Also, if you're carrying a ratchet to...

For those that think they will replicate this I couldn't make this speed with a brand new 24v Terrova on a Maverick HPX-V 18. I'm sure you saw this once but no way is this a consistent speed.

Sounds like he has the aux line and not the combiner. I had that setup on my Maverick with the F150 and it worked well. On my current boat I'm using the Yandina since the combiner is built into the...

I've heard that a bunch of dawn combined with icy water then trailered on a bumpy road with the bilge pump disabled does wonders for a dirty bilge. I actually have enough access to hit mine with the...

Yea. That was a bigger issue with my 4cyl F150 than it is with my V6 SHO. A slight bump in throttle from idle got rid of the chatter on the F150. I tried the Rubex but dumped it when I realized it...

I run 30 on my 6000s and 50 on the 8000s. All Suffix 832. I don't think 50 gives me enough line on the 6000s.

The ability to change a hub on the water in five minutes ALONE makes it far superior in my eyes. Everything else is just gravy.

Are you using the combiner from the add-a-battery set as well? If not, you should. That setup will work great. A lot of the above responses are assuming you are using a traditional 1/2/both switch...
