Just hook the two batteries up in series. To do this buy one short cable and use it to hook the positive of one of the batteries to the negative pole of the other. Then use the two remaining poles, one positive and one negative to hook up to the motor. good luck

The heat is developed from to much resistance from batteries to TM, check for loose/corroded connections at batteries, including the jumperwire, also check the size of wire from battery to plug, should be at least 8 gauge if not 6 gauge depending on the length of run. If corrosion has built up inside the wires this will also cause high resistance causing excessive heat build up. I would prolly just replace boat wiring to make sure none of the above problems are present. Use tinned copper marine grade wire that is multi stranded.

You have a high resistance short either inside the wiring or the lower unit. This will cause a voltage drop. I would be very careful not to keep it connected too long cuz the battery is trying to keep up with the current demand and may explode.

24 volt trolling motor wiring


Just like a flashlight. Positive to neg, In a loop going to the motor. That is the jump between the batteries, One red wire coming in from motor, it will go to pos, from one battery, the neg will go to the 2nd battery pos. From the 2nd battery neg will go to the motor. That is it, one jumper connecting the 2 batteries, will create the 24 volts. Hope this helps.

Wanting to install motorguide 24v trolling motor in boat, will it work on just 12 v system


No. you can put in extra batteries and use it, but you must remove you charging system from them to use it that way. Not really practical.

the black wire goes to - and the red goes to + for 12 volts. If you want 24 volts you need to add another battery and run a jumper wire from the - of the first battery to the + of the second battery and hook the white wire to the - of the second battery. Here is a picture to help you.

My 12/24 volt trolling motor only runs on 12 volts


Did you connect 2 batteries to try the 24 volt version? You have to link them together like a flashlight, positive to neg and then out the other side, for 24 volts, like a golf car.

Diagram of 36 volt hookup for trolling motor, i have a factory 24 volt wiring in my boat and I need to turn it into a 36 volt please help thank you


To get 36 volts, number batteries 1 thru 3. connect pos 2 to neg 1, connect pos 3 to neg 2, connect pos 1 to trolling motor controller and neg 3 to ground on trolling motor.
This is only a solution for 3 battery system.
For 4 battery system, connect 4 to 3 pos to pos and neg to neg.

Converting From 12/24 to Starght 24 Volt


if it is 24v. then you need to connect 2 battery in parallel. since the battery is only 12v.
if one battery is shoing red and the other is sohwing green, that means you are using 12v only, not the 24v.
connetion as follow:
positve of battery 1 to the motor, the negative of battery 1 to postive of battery 2. the negative of battery 2 to the motor.
