Inline fuse on Trolling Motor

9 posts in this topic

I blew the fuse on my trolling motor battery last weekend but I forgot to grab the old one or at least check the AMP of the fuse. I know the size but what amp should I get?

Motor is Basic 55# Minnkota with 12 Volt system (2 batts in Parallel) Any ideas to save me the trip from the lake back into town? I am heading out tonight and wanted to only drive out once.

Mine came with a 50 amp breaker. I would think the fuse would be the same.

The more recent 55's draw up to 50 amps.

Mines a few years old....same model. 55 should do ya' fine.

A 50 amp should do it, but while you're there I'd like for a 50 amp auto-reset breaker - no fuses to replace next time.

It really depends on the size of the wire used in the circuit since the fuse is to protect the wire from meltdown and subsequent fire.

I agree with Marine Man - forget the fuse and go with the reset breaker. I believe MnKota recomends it.

Put the Breaker in. Works slick! Thanks again!
