Here’s my fishing boat wiring question:
My trolling motor is a 24 volt system. There are three wires that hook to the batteries. Red, black and orange.
Can you tell me which one goes where on the batteries? The orange has a 40 amp fuse that says “troll #2 batt”.
Here’s how you will want to set up your marine electrical:
- Black goes to negative of battery #1.
- Red goes to negative of battery #2.
- Orange goes to positive of battery #2.
There should be a jumper wire that connects between battery #1 positive and battery #2 negative. This jumper wire should a 40 amp fuse in-line also.
Happy Boat Wiring,
