Powering a 24v MinnKota Terrova the right way.

12 posts in this topic

Ok, so here's what I got.

1-Minnkota 24v, 80lb thrust Terrova Trolling motor

1-on board charger

2-deep cycle batteries

1-floating boat

Do I need anything else to make this work like its supposed to??

Stick an auto resetting inline breaker on that list along with a jumper wire to hook the battries into a series. Sounds good!

Just make sure that you are only feeding 12 volts to the power-up and power-down motor!

On a Terrova? The Vantage transom mount has the power U&D. I don't think the Terrova has anyting like that but correct me if I'm wrong.

So you have the correct plug on your boat already? 2 prong, 3 prong or are going to hard wire it??

You are correct on the terrova there is only 2 wires, ground and +24 Volt. There is no 12 volt power like on the vantage. I would make sure you get a breaker or fuse where the red wires connects to the battery. I had the unfortunate experience of what happens when you don't. Lets just say having the boat on fire 6 miles out on Mille Lacs is no fun, especially when the dang fire extinguisher decides to fail.

I belive MK calls for 40 amp on 12v and 50 on 24v systems. That's what my motors came with...

80# thrust MK motors draw 56 amps on high speed. You should use a 60-amp breaker with this motor.

I prefer a manual reset.

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.

    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.   
    • The new minn kota 300d didn't have the two 20ga wires so just spliced the black  to black and red to white from the charging cables, hooked all the batteries back up and everything is working again.
