2003 GS211, came with full fishing package, including 2 "cranking batteries" in port aft battery locker, including a Pemco switch, therefore I presume either one of the batts can be selected for cranking. I put a voltmeter on the factory bow mounted trolling motor power receptacle and can get only 12V out of two different pins, therefore I presume only 1 of the existing batts was wired to front, assuming that a 12V trolling motor would be used? Installing a bow mount 24V trolling motor.
-Back in '03 was that typical with the fishing package.. Wired only for 12V?
-If that's the case then presumably the existing wiring might not be sufficient guage for 24V?
I DO have room in port aft batt area to add a 3rd Batt (possible listing problem acknowledged). Existing postings on this forum concerning actual mounting of the trolling motor have been most helpful. Any ideas on best way to proceed with the electrics??
