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

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.

To hook up to 24 volts you need to join a positive cable from one battery to the source[motor or controller] and the the negative cable goes to the positive of the next of the next battery,then the negative [of battery #2] goes to ground,same for all 24 volt systems.If the slower speeds don't work then the rheostat in the accelerator handle could be at fault,but getting the 24 volts sorted out may fix everything.

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.

How to attach leads to batteries


This is what they call a series connection. The two 12 volt batterys are wired together in a series to make one 24 volt battery. The positive wire or red from your trolling motor goes to the positive post on battery 1. The negative lead from trolling motor goes to the negative post on battery 2 then there is a short wire that goes from negative on battery one to positive on battery 2. NOW GET THAT HOOKED UP AND GET IN THE BASS.

Sounds like it's heating up. Check your wire size. For 24 volt: 6 guage wire is reccommended - that's pretty heavy. Also check the wiring of your batteries. It's easy to get mixed up if you have 24 or 36 volt system. One more thing...check the fuse size to make sure that is correct. Hope this helps. Brian
