wiring a 12/24 volt TM plug

8 posts in this topic

I have a ranger fisherman that has 24 volt set up for the bow mount but I want to add a 24 v. vantage to the back.

4 wires on the receptacle. Orange (24v.), Red (12 volt for the lift motor), black, and a black with blue.

Set me up with where to hook each wire to the existing battery arrangement. I think I should be able to pull both 12v. and 24 volt off the deep cycles. I don't want to add in the starting battery to the mix if possible.

thanks,
ccarlson

I believe that the black and blue stripped one is paired with the orange, but to make sure I will check in the morning and post.

The Vantage will have three wires. Yellow,black and red. The Yellow is for the auto deploy wich goes on your first battery along with the black, The red goes on the + of the second battery. VERY important not to wire the motor so that the deploy gets 24 volts! The deploy runs on 12 volts. You will cook it in seconds if its wired wrong. This will also void any warranty.

First I want to get the plug receptacle that goes on the boat wired correctly for 12/24. Then I will wire the matching male plug to the vantage according to the needs of the motor so thanks for the info on the vantage color code. that will help for step 2.

Now if I can just get the 4 wires for the receptacle figured out, that is what I need right now. Like I said before, I know the red should be pulling 12v. and the orange wire 24 volts and the other two I assume are grounds. Any suggestions?

thanks,

Ok, i think i get it. I have a three wire receptacle wired to the batteries. I have two reds and a black on the receptacle. I have one red off the recept going to the + on my first battery and the black going to the - on the first battery. My second red off the recept goes to the + on my third battery. So yours would be the + on your second battery. To summarize i would imagine you would eliminate the black wire with the stripe. Then just make sure the receptacle that you wire to the end of the motor leads match up with the wiring on the receptacle to the batteries. You then just have to connect your batteries in series with the supplied fused jumper you get with the motor if your buying new. Another note, your boat is far heavier than mine, if you can throw three batteries into the equasion, you'll be much happier with the Vantage 101. It draws less amps than the 50 or 72 and the high thrust is great in the wind even on a 17 foot alumi.

D Man,
That is what I suspect as well. Just don't use the black with stripe but be sure unit ground wire matches the ground on receptacle.

Makes sense. I think I'll get a volt meter to be sure before I hook up.

thanks,

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
