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,

    •   No expert here either but I've talked to a couple.    Would your new, expanded slab be conducive to making the addition another zone or zones?  You could maybe run that expansion off different lines from the manifold above the slab so you don't have to route and pour over seams.   Definitely insulate below with GOOD insulation.  As mentioned, heat doesn't really rise the way we think it does; it moves to the cold and the earth will soak it up.   Heating your loop would be cheapest with a natural gas fired boiler, propane second.  Geothermal is expensive to put in so your payback on a new system is long.  Air source heat pumps are great until it gets really cold.  In the end, radiant in floor is the most efficient way to heat, but yes, it's slow to respond.  But if your toes are warm, you will be too.
    • I appreciate the response, I take nothing personally and didn't mean to be snippy in my reply. There are a lot of great comments on here and I will keep you posted on what I decide. Thanks again. 
    • Ice is quickly thinning on those northern lakes that still have ice with dangerous conditions on most lakes. The Wisconsin River is now open even in its northern stretches, but ice chucks can be seen melting along the river's edge. The lower Wisconsin River has finally dropped to near normal levels. Some walleye and brown trout are being caught on the Menominee River both trolling and angling from shore. Low water and cool water temperatures slowed the walleye run so far on the Oconto River. Anglers along the Wolf River have been starting to catch walleyes. A few sturgeon have been seen along the Wolf River, but warmer temperatures are needed for the sturgeon to start their annual spring spawning run. Walleye and sauger action on the Wisconsin River and Lake Wisconsin is slowly picking up.The steelhead season opened on the lower stretch of the Brule River last weekend and anglers reported good successPhoto Credit: DNRSpring steelhead fishing opened last Saturday for the lower stretch of the Brule River and there were lots of fishermen and fisherwomen on the river many who had a successful opener. .
    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
