Here you go:

For the vantadge, that is how you would connect the red and black lead. The yellow lead needs to go to the + side of the negative (black) connection, this powers the lift for the trolling motor.

Are the batteries drained equally in a 24 volt system? I have one trojan and one regular deep cycle hooked together. I know trojans don't have a memory problem, but I am worried that the regular battery will have a memory problem.

Marine Man, I've got one for you. Talked to a guy who seemed to have a pretty good handle on batteries. He was saying for a 24 v, 2 battery system, when they go out and you need to buy new, consider going with 4 - 6v golf cart type batteries. Same power but much longer draw and more reserve capacity and more recharge cycles than 12 volt batteries. First, ever heard of it and does it seem reasonable? Second, hooking up each pair in series to make each pair a "12v" seems obvious, but how would the rest hook up if it was doable?

Yeah, it's probably true...at least I believe it.

All four 6 volt batteries in series would make your 24 volts. You'd merely extend the circuit shown in the 2nd post with two more batteries.

You must have a big boat if you have room for four golf cart batteries.

Not sure where I'd put 'em, but the idea seemed intriguing

I haven't heard that before (golf cart batteries), but I suppose it makes sense. They're probably designed to be longer lasting from the start, and there probably aren't 4 dozen companies that make them in varying quality.

Actually, I think there are very few companies that make batteries in general. Many different private labels and specs though.
