Recently purchased a used 74# Maxxum 24 volt trolling motor to replace the 46# MotorGuide I had. It doesn't seem to be getting enough power it runs slower than the 46# Motorguide. Positive from motor to positive on battery A. Negative from motor to Negative on battery B. Negative from battery A to Positive on Battery B. New Batteries...what gives?

Sound like either voltage drop or hi resistance from cables... if you test 24v at the plug then resistance is the problem and may have to rewire to a 6ga wire to carry the load, pretty simple just hook the new cable to the old one and SLOWLY pull it thru, help may be required because you dont want to loose it half way.....hope this helps...GL

Ihave a motorguide brute hyper 67 trolling motor can't get the 24 volts to work motor runs on 12 and 24 volts and all five speeds but don't have the thrust of 24 volts


This is most often caused by a faulty 24 Volt, section, (usually damaged output semiconductors, or the drive?) in the speed controller, fault, the only "Fix" is replacement. Simply obtain the entire speed controller and replace it "En Bloc" as it were. You will need to also obtain a service manual so you can disassemble it and obtain the parts numbers for the replacement parts.Otherwise take it to a professional and ask for a "Quote" as to prospective costings and go from there.

24 volt trolling motor (motorguide) not working. Have 24 volts at receptacle in hull of boat but when I plug in the trolling motor and check the volts on the plug, I only read 6 volts. Any idea whats...


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.

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.

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 do you hook up the 2 batteries to a 24 volt motorguide trollong motor


To get 24 volts from two batteries they are wired in series. A wire is connected from the "+" terminal of the first battery to the "-" terminal of the second battery. Your trolling motor is connect to the "-" terminal of the first battery and the "+" terminal of the second battery. You will be operating at 24 volts.

Wring for trolling motor


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
