When running the wire up thru the fuel tank inspection plate inside the center console, what is the best way to seal the hole? Thanks.

You do not run it through pie plate. You run it from console wires and cables square opening towards front inspection plate and than alongside of fuel fill line up to port gunnel and from there to anchor locker.

I have a 2019 23se. I have an open bow with just a seat ahead of the console. The only openings in the deck that I am aware of that I have access to are the fuel tank inspection plate inside the center console and the opening for the bilge.

Update: The 6g duplex is in from CC to anchor locker. It would not go thru the fuel line chase alone. I taped a piece of old garden hose to the fuel vent line, at the side of the boat. I then taped the duplex to the connection of vent line and hose. I pulled the duplex and hose thru to the cc by pulling on the vent line and pushing on the hose/duplex. Success. I then used the hose to pull the vent line back in to position. 20 minutes

That being said...Minn Kota supplies their 24V/80lb units with 3' leads of 10 AWG. Not sure what comes with the 36V units.
All Manufactures do 10ga @ the motor in all voltages.

Wart, If you run a 6 AWG from the batteries, what do you do for the splice connection from a 6 AWG to the 10 AWG leads? I've seen 10/12 - 8 connectors but not to a 6?

The 6awg goes to a trolling motor receptacle mounted somewhere near your
trolling motor. The 10awg leads from the trolling motor go to the male plug matching up to the receptacle. Unplug your trolling motor when charging your TM batteries. No need to use any splices. Marino makes a nice 70amp TM plug/receptacle. Go for the heavy duty one.

THIS is the Top TM plug out there and the only one I use any more.


A LOT of TM plugs limit the size cable you can use.

No...Install a Master ON/OFF switch and use it.. When your Not using the TM turn the switch OFF. It's my contention that NOT turning power OFF when not in use is the biggest culprit to TM damage.....Corrosion and screwing up the Mother Board.

Update. Batteries and charger installed.

I'm reading 26.88 volts at the bow. I believe that is good, yes?
Definitely need some wire management in there. Voltage sounds in line with what you should be seeing from two fully charged batteries, but the real test would be what you see under load.
