I have a brand new 24v Minn Kota with 70lb thrust. I also have 2 year old interstate batteries. I want to run 1.4 ot 1.5 with the boat. I need to run the motor at 6 or 7 on the pad to achieve the speed.
How long should the batteries hold power?
I am only getting 1 hour out of them before I have to slide the power on the pad up to 10. I took the batteries back and the told me they were good.
Is your boat really heavy? Maybe more thrust on a trolling motor is needed? Maybe a second opinion on the batteries? Are they old batteries...I end up replacing mine every few years and use the old one for other things. Good luck...
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
