SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: I just bought a 74 lb Minn Kota trolling motor

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.de79e02.jpg

SOURCE: 24 volt trolling motor wiring

Just like a flashlight. Positive to neg, In a loop going to the motor. That is the jump between the batteries, One red wire coming in from motor, it will go to pos, from one battery, the neg will go to the 2nd battery pos. From the 2nd battery neg will go to the motor. That is it, one jumper connecting the 2 batteries, will create the 24 volts. Hope this helps.

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.

1. Short in the trolling motor itself
2. TOO SMALL a ground wire. ..need at least 8 gauge wire!!!!
3. Bad/dirty/corroded battery connections
..Make sure your battery/trolling motor is not accidentally touching the metal boat.. DO NOT CONNECT ANY WIRES TO THE BOAT!!! - PERIOD!!.

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.

How to attach leads to batteries


This is what they call a series connection. The two 12 volt batterys are wired together in a series to make one 24 volt battery. The positive wire or red from your trolling motor goes to the positive post on battery 1. The negative lead from trolling motor goes to the negative post on battery 2 then there is a short wire that goes from negative on battery one to positive on battery 2. NOW GET THAT HOOKED UP AND GET IN THE BASS.

Diagram of 36 volt hookup for trolling motor, i have a factory 24 volt wiring in my boat and I need to turn it into a 36 volt please help thank you


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.

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.
