sorry no drawing but hope this helps. positive wire from trolling motor to positive on battery A. negetive wire from trolling motor to negetive on battery B. then you need a short wire to connect the negetive on battery A to the positive on battery B (which will hook it up in "series"(24 volt)) . that is how my minkota 24v trolling motor is hooked up.

I agree with FWT. Pos from trolling motor on pos post on the 1st batt...Neg from motor on neg post 2nd batt. Then just hook the two terminals that you have not used together (use a wire of equal or bigger gauge as motor wires when doing this).

I also use an auto reseting 40 or 50 amp breaker on the pos lead of the trolling motor. Just in case...fires on a boat make me nervous.

What kind of Minnkota trolling motor? If it has a volt 12 feed its extremely important you wire the plug up correctly.

    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
    • Remember to get those birds entered!  I know there are more out there.
    • Well wondering if anyone is going to be out in the heat for the last turkey season.  I was out last night and just needed a nice strutter to get a bit closer.   I moved the blind to his entry/exit point.   He didn't want to follow the hen when she walked by my blind twice.   He stayed on the high ground in the field. Hoping for better results.
    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming.
