12 Volt/ 2 battery wiring and chargine



Here is the question. I just purchased a second trolling motor battery which I will string together in parallel with my first trolling motor battery.

I know that I will string them in parallel by hooking + on batt1 to + on batt2 and - on batt1 to - on batt2.

So here is my questions:

1. I have a single bank charger, what wiring should I use for charging? I assume that I can hook up the charger to one of the batteries and charge both as they are in parallel.

2. How should my trolling motor wiring be configured if my batteries are in parallel? Should I have the positive lead hooked to + on batt1 and negative lead hooked to - on batt2? Or can I hook up positive to + on the same battery.

Ultimately I would like to know if this configuration will work....

2 12 Volt batteries hooked in parallel. Single Bank charger hooked to one of the battery. Trolling motor hooked to other battery.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!
