What size fuse should I use for my trolling motor?

Should I put a fuse on my trolling motor?

as long as you’ve got a fuse or breaker on the positive line at the battery, there is no good reason for a 2nd fuse, on the same line, at the plug.

Do I need a fuse for my Minn Kota trolling motor?

It is highly recommended that a circuit breaker or fuse be used when installing a trolling motor. Refer to the Minn Kota “Conductor Gauge and Circuit Breaker Sizing Table”. For motors requiring a 60-amp breaker, the Minn Kota MKR-19 60-amp circuit breaker is recommended.

What size fuse should I use on a 36 volt trolling motor?

Pretty sure Minnkota recommends a 60 amp breaker for 24 & 36 volt motors.

How many amps does a Minn Kota trolling motor draw?

The Minn Kota Endura C2 55 Transom – mount 12V 55 lb. Thrust Trolling Motor has a max amp draw of 52 amps/hr but only 5 lbs more thrust.

Can I run my 24 volt trolling motor on 12 volts?

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.

What size breaker do I need for my boat?

The ABYC says that a circuit protection device should be sized no greater than 150% of the rated current of the conductor that it feeds. And no greater than the sum of all next-in-line protection devices. A main feeder breaker that is smaller than all next-in-line downstream fuses or breakers is fine.

Does a Minn Kota Terrova have a fuse?

It is a circuit breaker, not a fuse.

What size battery do I need for a 55 lb thrust trolling motor?

Using a Newport Vessels 55lb thrust motor continuously for two hours at full speed would require a battery with a 100-120 AH rating.

What battery do I need for a Minn Kota trolling motor?

What type of battery do I need to run my Minn Kota Trolling Motor: A Minn Kota trolling motor will operate with any lead acid, deep cycle marine 12-volt battery/batteries. For best results, use a deep cycle, marine battery with at least a 110-ampere hour rating.

Why do you need a circuit breaker for a trolling motor?

A trolling motor circuit breaker is designed to “trip” at a certain amperage, which breaks the circuit and prevents the motor from overloading and damaging itself.

How many amps does a Lowrance ghost trolling motor draw?

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. And how a setting of 30% draws 10% of the amount of power used at 90%.

36 Volt Power Source.

How does a 12 volt circuit breaker work?

How do they work? Most circuit breakers found in 12V or 24V systems operate thermally. The heat generated by the excess current during an overload causes the contacts inside the breaker to come apart and break the circuit.

How can I speed up my trolling motor?

Make Your Trolling Motor Faster

  1. Make Your Trolling Motor Faster.
  2. Change the Battery.
  3. Reduce the Load of the Canoe.
  4. Fix a more Streamlined Propeller.
  5. Put on Lighter Attire.
  6. Replace the Existing Motor.
  7. Conclusion.

How long will a 12v battery run a trolling motor?

Almost 5 hours doesn’t seem too bad, but that is really a max runtime in ideal conditions. Reality is likely to be less. If the battery is old, damaged or not fully charged then you will not get the rated amp hours from it, reducing your runtime.

What gauge wire does a trolling motor use?
