12 Volt/ 2 battery wiring and chargine

2 posts in this topic

Here is the question. I just purchased a second trolling motor battery which I will string together in parallel with my first trolling motor battery.

I know that I will string them in parallel by hooking + on batt1 to + on batt2 and - on batt1 to - on batt2.

So here is my questions:

1. I have a single bank charger, what wiring should I use for charging? I assume that I can hook up the charger to one of the batteries and charge both as they are in parallel.

2. How should my trolling motor wiring be configured if my batteries are in parallel? Should I have the positive lead hooked to + on batt1 and negative lead hooked to - on batt2? Or can I hook up positive to + on the same battery.

Ultimately I would like to know if this configuration will work....

2 12 Volt batteries hooked in parallel. Single Bank charger hooked to one of the battery. Trolling motor hooked to other battery.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
