Thrust Trolling Motor has a max amp draw of 52 amps/hr but only 5 lbs more thrust. 3. Because of the larger windings in the 50 lb thrust model, lower speeds use less amperage for the same thrust.

## What size battery do I need for a 50 lb thrust trolling motor?

Most trolling motor batteries fail due to lack of proper charging. We suggest selecting a 12 volt deep cycle marine battery with at least a 110 amp hour rating, usually a group 27 size battery.

## How much amperage does a trolling motor draw?

The Force trolling motor can run on 24 volts or 36 volts, and the chart below shows how a 24v setting will draw higher amps then running at 36 volts.

…

24 Volt Power Source.

Throttle Level | Thrust | Current |
---|---|---|

10% | 25 N-m (6 lbf) | 2 A |

20% | 45 N-m (10 lbf) | 3 A |

30% | 70 N-m (16 lbf) | 6 A |

40% | 101 N-m (23 lbf) | 9 A |

## How many amps does a Minn Kota Endura 50 draw?

the Endura 45 and 50 also are 42 Max Amp Draw.

## How long will a deep cycle battery run a trolling motor?

Amperage Hour Rating

In more technical terms, a 100 amp hour rated battery can deliver 100 amp hours of current to a trolling motor. So if a motor was running at low speed and pulling 4 amps, the battery should last around 25 hours.

## How many amps does a 55lb trolling motor use?

The Minn Kota Endura C2 55 Transom – mount 12V 55 lb. Thrust Trolling Motor has a max amp draw of 52 amps/hr but only 5 lbs more thrust.

## What size battery should I use for a 55 lb thrust trolling motor?

Using a Newport Vessels 55lb thrust motor continuously for two hours at full speed would require a battery with a 100-120 AH rating.

## How long will a 50 amp hour battery last?

This means that a battery has a 100 A.H. capacity if it is discharged over 20 hours, or at about 5 Amps-per-hour (100 A.H. / 20 hours = 5 Amps DC). However, this same battery would last only one hour if the discharge rate was 50 Amps-per-hour (50 Amps DC x 1 hour = 50 A.H.) because of the high rate of discharge.

## Do trolling motors need a circuit breaker?

It is highly recommended that a circuit breaker or fuse be used when installing a trolling motor. … For motors requiring a 60-amp breaker, the Minn Kota MKR-19 60-amp circuit breaker is recommended.

## How many amps does a Minn Kota ulterra draw?

According to the MinnKota spec sheet, the max draw is 56 amps at 24 volts.

## What gauge wire is on a trolling motor?

Many trolling motors can be used with 8 gauge wire, however, the length of wire you need and the amperage of your motor can alter the size of wire you need. For example, if you need a longer length of wire, you’ll likely need a lower gauge and therefore thicker wire.

## What size fuse should I use for my trolling motor?

The fuse amp capacity will need to be higher than the maximum amp capacity of the trolling motor. For example, if your trolling motor has a maximum capacity of 38 amps, you’ll need at least a 40- or 50-amp fuse.

## What size battery do I need for a 40 lb thrust trolling motor?
