12 Volt Wiring for Trolling Motor
When you buy batteries always look for the manufacture sticker on them and match them up that way as well. You can dig around at a Fleet Farm today and find batteries that were manufactured in late 2013. No thanks. If I was buying batteries today I'd find a set that had 3/15 on them or at worst 2/15 on them....not 11/13 or 2/14.
So I see that Fleet Farm sells battery cables up to 48" long. They are labeled "heavy duty" and are 2/0 gauge wires. So I guess I answered my question about whether it's possible. Now I just need to know if it's a good idea. I don't think that I'd need to go any longer than 36" and may be able to get away with 24".
