24v - battery jumper length ?

4 posts in this topic

Im putting a bow mount on an old boat, the best place for 2 bats is one under each console due to weight distribution. will using a 3'-4' jumper affect the performance? I'll be using 6g wire.

Not enough where you're really going to notice it I think. That short with the gauge you're running it should be just fine.

Thanks MM.

So I think I have it hooked up, 80 terrova w/AP, using a typical 4 prong marinco plug. theres a diagram on another site showing a typical 12/24 aplication using 2 pos wires and 2 neg wires off the + on one bat and the - on the other going to the female plug in, with a jumper between the remaining + -(above question)

Im assuming that this allows either 12 or 24 volt motors to use the same plug..? If Im only using 1 set of + and - wires to the female plug using the tabs that hook to the right 24v connection, am I OK and just loosing out on the possible use of a 12v motor with this plug, or does this 24v motor need 12v too?

Based on the picture, I'd say that it's setup for a trolling motor that has an option for 12V or 24V operation, and you conenct the wires from the trolling motor to interface with the socket, as shown above.

In the end, it's all about how you wire up the trolling motor side.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
