How heavy was your large crab pot? I'll be crabbing if it is open so I want to be prepared if the 100 amp goes. Thanks
I think my issue was with some skinny wire, seems like most folks are doing fine with 80-100amp. Don't know exactly how much that pot weighed but it was thick rebar and a big 3x3' tall pot. Did much better with normal recreation sized pots, now it pullsa line of 4 shrimp pots with no trouble. That was when I was trying to run it off a stand alone battery which I had heard of folks doing so no input from an alternator.
