Upgrading from 24v to 36 questions
So I have a new TM on the way. I am going from 24v to 36. I have this three bank charger on my boat. Do you think there is any issue to putting all three banks on my TM batteries? I have an alligator clip charger that I can snap on my starting battery. When I feel like spending another $400.00, I'll buy a four bank charger. I was just hoping that I could limp by with this for now.My plan is to live forever... So far, so good.

I think you're on the right track. That's a good charger on the boat so go with it till it's necessary. Single bank chargers are less than $100. You should be able to run both 110 cords out together to a splitter on your extension cord, or if it's a recessed socket I'd splice the cords together just below the receptical with solder and heat shrink, eliminating the need for splitters and such. A good 5amp charger is plenty to keep the starting batt hot..

Hey not to hijack this thread, but I have a weird newbie question. I am a cheap-ass and in the market for a new trolling motor. The one I have is a 55lb, and it seems good enough for what I do. Its seems like some of these 36v trolling motors could pull a skier. What is the reason for all of the extra power?

It's not the added power, it's the run time that's attractive to many. The increased voltage makes everything(wires, motor, controls) run cooler and more efficient..Plus you added 150amp hours to the circuit.

Oh ok cool wasn't sure. So I should upgrade to 24v if I'm at 12 now. Plus In really only have room for two trolling batteries

Yea man if you're running 12v now, 24v will be a dream.... Now you just need to find $1000. I have a 74lb MK Ripetide on my 18' boat and it will drag it at 3knts. I thinks it's 9 or 10 years old and has been awesome. I have never run the batteries all the way down.

Just explain how much longer you can stay on the water, thereby extending her personal time..
