  • Trolling motor wiring question

    I am putting a 12v MinnKota PowerDrive 55lb trolling motor on my old aluminum v-hull. I'm connecting the positive wire to a 60 amp breaker. Can someone tell me what size wire I will need from the breaker to the battery?

    Thanks!

    Depends on the length of the wires. Here is a good reference chart from Minkota.

    In your case #8 if 5 feet or less, # 6 for up to 10 feet
    The last suit you wear won't need any pockets. You might as well spend it on a boat.

      Thanks. I'm looking at a distance of less than 6 inches. I appreciate the help.
