The batteries must be connected in SERIES. The method described is proper, but the name of the method is wrong.
On the female plug for the motor on the boat, if you have the wiring for TWO separate batteries coming to the plug, the male plug must have a jumper in it. To find out, disconnect the batteries one at a time and voltage check to see if there are two separate battery systems there. There probably are. If so, the series circuit is provided for in the male plug by the jumper and not in the back of the boat where the batteries must be wired independent of each other.

I have uploaded a image of the wire system. folllow it carefully. the fuses rating should be no more than than thirty amp. go to your local outboard dealer they sell inline breakers that are designed for trolling motors. i prefer them because you don't have to replace them after a overload. you just reset the breaker.

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.
