It should but may not run at it's intended potential. It may also run your battery down a lot quicker.

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.

Is this a straight 24V system... not a 12v - 24v.Correct..
The best advice is use a 50-60 amp resettable breaker..with 6 gauge wire (minimum 8 gauge) ... make sure your connections are clean, tight, and greased to prevent corrosion. USE a BIG HEAVY "jumper" cable between the + and - terminals.

Here are several sites that explain what you need to know..
I went from a 12-24v to a straight 36v Motorguide on my 21ft triton.. WOW!!!! talk about BAD A$$!!
I use the felt washers under all battery connections and the battery spray liberally on each connection..

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.

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
