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.

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.

I don't have any slow trolling speeds. Only fast speeds on my Pro Series 6700 trolling motor. Any ideas? Also, it is a 24 volt system. How do I properly hook up the batteries. The two batteries are...


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.

I bought a used trolling motor (motorguide brute 750 50# thrust) it has a 12-24 volt selector switch and three wires to hook up to battery, a black, a white, and a red. i'm assuming on 12v setting of...


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.

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

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
