24 volt wiring

9 posts in this topic

If I understand the help on wiring for 12 vt correctly but I want to wire 24 vt., do I hook one red wire to the positive side of battery 1 and one red wire to the negative side of battery 2? Then hook one black wire to the neg of battery 1 and one to the positive of battery 2? The wiring on my Pro-V 24 vt. system is not working and I have a on board charger that I need to hook to it also. Gary

One jumper between batts pos to neg and then between batt 1 pos and batt 2 neg you'll have 24V.

WHAT YEAR AND MAKE IS YOUR BOAT AND HOW MANY WIRES ARE AT YOUR TROLLING MOTOR PLUG. THE BATTERIES CAN BE WIRED TWO DIFFERENT WAYS.

Its a 2002 74lb Maxum mounted on a 2000 1900 Pro_V. It has 4 (2 red and 2 black)wires coming from the trolling motor to the batteries. It also has 2 wires from my on board charger.

IF YOU HAVE FOUR WIRES TO BOW MOUNT TROLLING PLUG THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE A FOUR WIRE PLUG ON THE BOAT. IF SO THEN YOU WOULD NOT PUT THE BATTERIES IN SERIES. YOU WOULD WIRE THE BATTERIES AS TWO SEPERATE 12 VOLT BATTERIES. YOU WOULD NEED A 12/24 VOLT PLUG FOR YOUR TROLLING MOTOR. IF SO THEN YOU WOULD PUT THE BLACK WIRE FROM TROLLING MOTOR TO THE NEG SPOT ON THE PLUG AND THE RED WIRE TO THE 24 HOLE ON PLUG. THE TROLLING MOTOR PLUG WILL PUT YOUR BATTERIES IN SERIES FOR YOU. IF YOU ONLY HAVE ONE RED AND ONE BLACK ON THE ON BOARD CHARGER THE IT IS ONLY FOR 12 VOLTS. IF YOU MNEED MORE HELP GIVE ME A CALL AND I WILL HELP YOU. GOOD LUCK

GConda,

The 12/24 v plug on the boat/trolling motor should do the jump for you. I run a 2001 1775 Pro V and the same trolling motor. Wires from the plug should be wired to two batteries like 2 seperate 12 volt batteries. You only have two wires coming from the charger? Is it just a one bank charger (for 1 12 volt battery)? You should be running a 2 bank charger. You will then have 2 red wires and 2 black ones that get hooked up to the batteries like two seperate 12 v.

YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT THE ONBOARD YOU CAN BUY A CHARGING PLUG FROM THE DEALER (RED PLUG) AND USE THE STAYNCHARGE ORIGINAL CHARGING SYSTEM WHILE YOU TOW AND CHARGE YOUR BATTERIES FROM YOUR TOW VEHICLE THROUGH THE BOW MOUNT TROLLING PLUG. THIS SITE HAS THE PRODUCTS AT REALLY LOW PRICES JUST FOR FISHING MN MEMBERS. IF YOU NEED HELP WITH IT CONTACT RICK OR ONE OF THE OTHER PRO STAFFERS ON TGHIS SITE. GOOD LUCK

Thks all for your help. I think I totally understand it now. I am pretty sure I have one or more of the wires from my 24 vt. plug hooked up wrong. I just need to get a tester to get A+ to A+ amd so forth. Gary

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
