Thanks in advance, I've gotten some great battery advice here in the past.
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".
