## Can you hook a 24 volt trolling motor to a 12 volt battery?

Either go 12 volt or add another battery and run the rated 24 volt. It wont hurt your motor. Most newer ones will not even turn over because the circuit board senses less than 22 volts (dead 24v system). Old ones will turn over but you will have half power.

How do you wire a 24V trolling motor plug?

Feed the wires through the plug housing. On the 12-24V trolling motor plug, connect the positive 24V wire to the terminal marked “24”, the 12V wire to the terminal marked “12” and the negative wire to the terminal marked “-”. On straight 24V trolling motors, connect the two wires to “24” and “-” as appropriate.

### Does a 24 volt trolling motor need 2 batteries?

While small and medium trolling motors use a single 12v marine battery, larger trolling motors use larger 24v and 36v systems, and require 2 or 3 marine batteries, accordingly.

Can you charge a 24 volt system with a 12 volt charger?

The circuit below shows how to arrange switching so that two 12v batteries can be connected in series to supply 24v, yet can be charged in parallel from a 12v charger. Consider the 24v system above.

## Does 24V trolling motor need two batteries?

We recommend that you use separate deep cycle marine battery/batteries for your Minn Kota motor if you use a crank battery to start a gasoline outboard. There are two batteries in the 24 Volt Systems. There are two batteries that need to be deep cycle.

How many batteries do I need for a 24V trolling motor?

2 12-Volt
If you have a 24-Volt motor, you can use 2 12-Volt batteries in series or a single 24-Volt battery and if you have a 36-Volt motor you can use 3 12-Volt batteries in series.

### Is it better to charge batteries in series or parallel?

Series connections provide a higher voltage which is slightly more efficient. This means that batteries wired in series can last marginally longer than batteries wired in parallel. However, batteries connected in series vs. parallel will provide roughly the same amount of runtime.

How do you hook up 4 12 volt batteries in parallel?

To join batteries in parallel, use a jumper wire to connect both the positive terminals, and another jumper wire to connect both the negative terminals of both batteries to each other. Negative to negative and positive to positive. You CAN connect your load to ONE of the batteries, and it will drain both equally.

## What size fuse do I need for a 24 volt trolling motor?

A 50 amp. Its sounds like you may have a problem somewhere melting fuses is not good.

How do you charge two 12 volt batteries in a series with a 12 volt charger?

One basic configuration for charging batteries in series is to connect the positive charger output (in red) to the positive end of one of the batteries. Then, connect the negative end of the battery to the positive end of the next one, and continue to do so for the rest of your batteries.

### How many amp hours do I need for 24V trolling motor?

The Force trolling motor can run on 24 volts or 36 volts, and the chart below shows how a 24v setting will draw higher amps then running at 36 volts….24 Volt Power Source.

Throttle Level Thrust Current
10% 25 N-m (6 lbf) 2 A
20% 45 N-m (10 lbf) 3 A
30% 70 N-m (16 lbf) 6 A
40% 101 N-m (23 lbf) 9 A

Can you charge 24V battery with 12v solar panel?

Conclusion. Yes, you can use a 12V solar panel to charge a 24V battery. However, it is not as efficient as using a 24V solar panel. Using a solar panel with a smaller rated voltage than the battery will result in a slower charging time.

## Will a 24 volt trolling motor last longer than a 12-volt?

The run time of 24v trolling motors is up to twice as long as that of 12v trolling motors, when running on a battery with the same amp hours. This is due to the fact that they have a significantly lower amp draw, and are mostly used at a lower throttle setting, resulting in slower depletion of the battery.

How many amps does a 24 volt trolling motor pull?

### How long will a 100ah lithium battery last on trolling motor?

around 25 hours
In more technical terms, a 100 amp hour rated battery can deliver 100 amp hours of current to a trolling motor. So if a motor was running at low speed and pulling 4 amps, the battery should last around 25 hours. (100 amp hour rating / 4 amps = 25 hours).

Where can I buy a parallel 12 volt switch?

Parallel Switch – Voltage: 12V Terminals: 1 Duty Cycle: Intermittent Source: Aftermarket Sold by Rareelectrical and ships from Amazon Fulfillment. In Stock. Sold by RisingSteel Brands and ships from Amazon Fulfillment.

## How many duty cycles does a parallel switch have?

Parallel Switch – Voltage: 12V Terminals: 1 Duty Cycle: Intermittent Source: Aftermarket Sold by Rareelectrical and ships from Amazon Fulfillment.

Does the alternator charge the batteries at 12 volts?

The Alternator also still charges them at 12 volts as well. I hope this helps. More sharing options… It’s called (imagine that) a “Series Parallel” switch. have them also.
