I am in need of your help with my boat's 24 volt trolling motor wiring.
I have a problem using my 70 lb. trolling motor at full power. It shuts down and I cannot use it.
The motor is wired using a Marinco 24 volt plug and receptacle. I talked with Marinco at one time and they told me the jumper in the plug was under sized but they had no corrective parts.
Any ideas of what has happened or what I can do to get this system running again?
Thanks for your help!
One option is to use only two of the terminals in the Marinco plug and do the 12/24 jump at the battery.
Basically, there is a wire from the plug to the negative of Battery 1 for the ground and a wire from the plug to the positive of Battery 2 for the 24v positive connection. This lead has circuit protection at the battery. A jumper between the positive of Battery 1 and the negative of Battery 2 is added to create the 12/24 system. This wire should be made from the same size wire as the long trolling motor leads.
Hope this helps,
