24V Upgrade Question

Question

Umma Gumma

I'm upgrading to a 24v trolling motor. I have a Marinco plug installed that was operating at 12v, so switching the plug and getting to 24v is easy.

What I'm wondering is if I can still hook up a depth finder to one of the two batteries I'll be using for the trolling motor to supply power to the device, instead of running new wires back to the starting battery? Can one battery in a 24v system supply just 12v to a device, even when the trolling motor is running?

You can draw 12v supply from either battery. Just hook up to one of them.

I changed from a 12 v system to a 24 v system. My Lund has a power plug installed, can't I just pull the wiring off of my old trolling motor and put it on my new one or is there a difference in the plugs?

I would suggest getting your 12 volt supply off of the negative battery feeding the 24 volt system less chance for interference that way.

It depends if its a 2,3, or 4 prong plug.

If I'm understanding you correctly and the trolling motors wiring and plugs are the same yes it should work.
