## What size battery do I need for a 36 lb thrust trolling motor?

We suggest selecting a 12 volt deep cycle marine battery with at least a 110 amp hour rating, usually a group 27 size battery. The higher the amp hour rating, the more run time you will receive. If an amp hour rating is not available, select a deep cycle battery with a minimum of 180 minutes reserve capacity.

## How long will 36V trolling motor battery last?

Well-Known Member. You should be getting much more than 4 hours. I would expect to run it hard for a 14 hour day of fishing without running out of power.

## Can you run a 36 volt trolling motor on 12 volts?

Whereas if you are using an electric steer motor, then lower volts won’t be a good idea to use for the same. Therefore, its not suggested to run a 36V trolling motor on 24V or the 24V trolling motor on 12V as it will burn up.

## How many amps does a 40 lb thrust trolling motor use?

40 to 45 lbs thrust is roughly 29 amps/hr instead of the 42 amps/hr that those respective motors draw for the same thrust.

## How long will a deep cycle battery run a trolling motor?

Amperage Hour Rating

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.

## How many amps does a Minn Kota Terrova draw?

Here was what MinnKota responded to me as well. “Dennis, The Terrova has a max draw of 46 amps. For a 12′ run to the batteries you will need 8 gauge multi-strand wires.

## How many amps does a 112 lb thrust trolling motor use?

A 112# thrust 36 volt would use approximately 38 amps at full speed, 20 at half speed.

## Will a 36 volt trolling motor run on 24 volts?

According to Minn Kota you can run a 36 volt motor on 24 volts: BUT, it will run hotter, draw more amps, deplete the batteries sooner, and run the risk of damaging the batteries from over heating. The iPilot function and steering motor may not work. All in all, probably not a good idea.

## What gauge wire should I use for a 36v trolling motor?

Eight gage wire is fine for the length of the original wire. If you can hook the original wire directly to the batteries it will be fine. However, you will be increasing the run if you add more wire, therefore you also have to increase the size to 6 gage. That makes sense thanks.

## Is my Minn Kota 12 or 24 volt?

The nameplates are most often found in the foot petals of the motor. Otherwise, you can look at the configuration of the trolling motor batteries to find the volts. Open the hood and look at the battery. If you see 6 cells, it’s a 12-volt battery, but if you see 12 cells, it means it’s a 24-volt battery.

## Can I run a 24v trolling motor on 12V?

24v hooked to 12v will spin for a while on a full battery but there will be no torque. You could stop it with your hand. It is like running your motor with half the spark plugs missing.
