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.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. 
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
