Be careful or sparks will fly! Work out how you want your batteries to sit together while remembering that you will be connecting battery ONE's positive post to Battery TWO's negative post. Measure the short length of heavy connector cable needed and note the battery post type and size buy cable and make clean secure connection. The output from the remaining two posts will be 24 volts. N.B. always use matching batteries of same age.

A fully charged battery should be over 12 volts. You may need to change your batteries.

Just to be sure have the batteries tested with a load tester. Then ohm test the brake. It should be around 35 ohms.

Hi. When you are looking for good quality batteries, they will have a 1 year warranty on them. If you get offered only a six month warranty, don't buy them. Good batteries weigh more than cheaper batteries, because they have more lead in them.
To get a good distance, you need to fit the biggest batteries that will physically fit in your machine.
Batteries are designed to handle a certain number of "charging cycles". If you run a battery down by approx 75%, you will only get a small number of "charging cycles". If you only use 25% of the batteries capacity, you will get 100's of charging cycles.
Gel batteries seem to be the better choice. Most AGM sealed batteries are designed to be stand-by batteries. They will work fine in your machine but only for light use. I have seen these batteries last for 7 years, but only for light use.
Good luck. Neil.

SOURCE: batteries die fast on my mobility scooter.

Hi. What size batteries you buy will be limited to the amount of room you have in the machine.
17 amp hour batteries are really a bit small for any mobility equipement. A lot of power chairs have 35 or 40 amp/hour batteries.
Buy the biggest that will fit into the available space.
Batteries are designed to perform a certain number of "charge cycles". If you run your batteries down by 75%, you will only get a small number of "charge cycles". If you only use 25% of the batteries capacity, you will get 100's of "charge cycles".
The best I have seen is 7 years out of a set of batteries. Short trips and recharging after each trip is the reason.
Good luck. Neil.

My son and I have 2 12 volt batteries which should be drawing 24 volts to our trolling motor but is not. We have a separate 12 volt starting battery what is going on.

If you connect 2 12 volt batteries in series to get 24 volts and you don't get it, then one of the batteries has a bad cell or you have a poor connection between the two.

No power like it is running on 12 volts need to know how to wire for 24 volts

I would first put a voltage tester on there and see if your getting 12 or 24 volts... You could have bad batteries... As far as running a 24 volt system the best thing to do is to set it up based on the owners manual... My 24v system has the position from battery (1) one going to the motor (put a fuse on that thing), the negative on battery (1) one goes to the position on battery (2) two. The negative on battery (2) two goes back to the motor.

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.
