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.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!

    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
