24 volt trolling motor set-up

4 posts in this topic

I was with a buddy this weekend and he has basically the same trolling motor set up I do, however he connects his 2 batteries together. We both have an Alumnicraft and it has separate wiring for each battery and a switch close to the trolling motor where you can choose 12 volt or 24 volt...We had a discussion about what is more practical and which set up might allow the batteries to stay charged longer...We could not come to an agreement so we would appreciate your insight....does it make an difference which way the 24 volt trolling batteries are connected?

Thanks for your insight

Only 1 way I know to hook up 24 volt is + on 1 battery to - on the other then pull your leads off the other 2 posts for the motor.

It does not make a difference.

In one case you're making the jumper between the two batteries right at the batteries.

In the other case you're making the jumper between them at the power plug.

You still have 24 volts, you still have the same length of run in the wires. Should really make no difference for the batteries or the ease of connecting them.

Thanks for the responses...I know that he charges both batteries separately just like I do...It seemed logical that it would make no difference but was not sure...Thanks again

    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there.

    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.  
    • This summer?   Seems like a long time.  Are you sure this guy knew what he was doing?     Freezing may or may not kill the parasite.     From CDC.  Freezing wild game meats, unlike freezing pork products, may not effectively kill all worms because some worm species that infect wild game animals are freeze-resistant.
