Need help hooking up Vantage trolling motor

3 posts in this topic

I'm not the handy type and need help wiring up my Vantage trolling motor. Batteries up front and have to get the wires up to them. Any idea where I could get this done at a reasonable rate? Also, do they make special wave wackers for the Vantage? Any help would be appreciated.

I have a vantage and whitecaps. I am sure wave wackers make it too. I just had to measure what they asked for and they made them.

I just did mine a week ago, it cost me 60 bucks for wiring and 60 amp fuse. i have wave wackers also for the unit. every boat is different. get 8 guage wire for the black and red wires, and 14 guage for the yellow wire. yellow wire must be wired to 12 volt only. that is for the lift motor on the vantage. also, get a 60 amp inline fuse for your red positive wire to protect the vantage. i got all mine at NAPA. this is all info right from minn kota, you can call them also for help. hope this helps out.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
