I was wondering if any of you have used 2 batteries (run in parallel) to run your 12v trolling motor? Is there any difference in the time the batteries last vs. a 24v set up? I assume you get close to double the time you would with one battery but I am just wondering if there are any drawbacks or unforseen issues....thanks.

And overall length of service life might be better as your not running a single down as low. The less you run them down, the less sulfacation occurs. Of course getting them back on the charger ASAP helps as well. I think I'm going to hook mine up in parallel.
