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.

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.

    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
    • And I am sure it will be a waste of server space You do understand that you just defined the meaning of the word conjecture don't you?     But there is conjecture so you have that  The only thing odd is that you are falling for the same type of fake news the Birthers fell for during the Obama years. Don't you understand you are quickly becoming the JV of libertopia?    Well, If you feel compelled then go ahead and forward your research to the proper authorities so they have a better chance at putting together the evidence to prosecute him because apparently without your insight they are not able to connect the proverbial dots. 
    • The dnc had russian propaganda that the russians hacked and released? Guess they provided the transparency the left is always so concerned about.
    • It's just a compilation of sources done on a public google drive. Pasting makes it searchable on this site.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzLcl2gcA6O_SWN3WWM4WTlMZ2M/view
    • This warm front might help out
    • Kind of off topic but I recently got a fl12. Having problems seeing the jig even with the gain all the way up. Works great until about 20fow and the jig turns into a in and out flicker. Switched transducers and still the same. Any advice??
    • Is there some reason that you don't post the link of where this is from?   Clearly this is pasted from somewhere, so why not post the link?
