Installing 24v Trolling Motor on boat with 12v system
My buddy is about to buy a 16' tracker that currently has a 42# 12v MK powerdrive on it. The boat currently has 2 batteries: (1) one for the main motor, and (2) one for the 12v trolling motor. He wants to install a 80# MK Terrova 24v, but the dealer is telling him its too complicated and that installing a 24v trolling motor on the system he currency has now would create endless electrical problems.
I'm calling BS.
Does anyone have experience with this?
