cumberlandjg Posted April 27, 2021 Report Share Posted April 27, 2021 Hi all, About to upgrade to a 36v Ipilot from an older 24v Minnkota. Currently I have one house, and the two TM batteries under the console. Granted it is a slightly smaller console due to it being a TE. My thoughts are to move my 3 trolling motor batteries and install a 3 bank charger in the front storage hatch towards the aft in the center. Secure them with battery trays and all so that they ride relatively smooth up there. I then plan to install a second house battery with a switch to my first and re-center the batteries under the console. What would be the downside of putting the three batteries in the front hatch? I am primarily inshore/jetties in Georgia never plan to run offshore so they shouldn't take too much of a crazy beating in either spot. The front hatch wouldn't be directly at the center of gravity but it isn't too far off. Powered with a 04 200 Vmax. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks!
