Rich

Did you try the WalMart? They show online to have them in stock and the one in Sulphur Springs is a 24 Hr supercenter.

Basscat should have a couple piles of junk NOCO chargers. I personally have seen a 50% failure rate of the 4banks. Richard at Basscat said the 3banks have been good but they are no longer using the 4banks. My 2017 was the last boat with a noco and it has cooked my battieries. I'm replacing next Tuesday with a MinnKota. Just my 2cents for what it's worth.

I have 2 two banks for 4 years now and love them. I can't say anything about the 4 bank.

Thanks for the input guys. Chargers fail regardless of brand. Obviously my minnkota just did. I will have to consider the two two bank option. For the walmart poster, they show it in stock for online sales but you,hav no way to know what the stores have.

Been playing this game a long time with multiple boats at a time and this is what I've learned FWIW;

Heat kills electrical devices.

More banks equals more heat concentrated in one spot.

I use a single bank and a 2 bank in my 3 battery boats, and two 2 banks in my 4 battery boats.
These setups cost no more than 3 and 4 bank chargers.

If you do happen to lose a bank, I'd rather toss a 1 or 2 bank in the trash than a 3 or 4.
If it's a repairable Dual Pro, I'd rather wrestle a 1 or 2 bank out and back in the bilge than a 3 or 4 bank, and pay less to ship it, not to mention I still have a charger in the boat that will allow me to make do until I repair or replace the bad one.

Lost Texan , you are on to something. Kevin, I will see you tomorrow. For anyone with the minnkota mk460, for some reason they felt the need to put inline fuses on each lead going to the batteries. I have owned every brand including noco over the years and do not recall seeing an inline fuse on any of them. Anyways, the fuse housing melted on several. I ended up removing all of the inline fuses and wiring them without them. Now the charger works with no issues and the wires do not get hot or melt.

It will get me through the weekend but I am switching to noco. .

So for those that have 4 batteries and are running 2- 2 bank noco's, are you using the 8 amp or 20 amp?
