Each bank is only 12 volts.
It can charge one battery using only one bank but the battery must be 12 volts.

Ya that.

It worked. Mac's upset and being coy.....   According to reports the banana boat arrived but the pony express fumbled on the goal line.....  Only in Buffalo.
Bigger isn't always better but Size definitely Matters!

I'm bent, but cannot do anything further.
The battery is officially lost as I posted in my other thread.
The ship made it to the US and the battery appears to have cleared customs.
It was FedEx that lost it somewhere between California and Buffalo, NY.
The battery guy is building me another one.
It will take him a few weeks.
Then 35+ days to get to the US by boat.
Then FedEx gets another shot at it to get it to my workplace.................or lose it again.
I bought two LA deep cycle series 31's to get by with.
I still have a bit more electrical work to do inside the cuddy that I'll finish up this week.
Then mount the 31's inside along with a 3 bank charger I had laying around to test the Ulterra.
If I get it all done this week, and that ois my target, I'll bring out the boat to the lake here next weekend and give things a trial run.
Lots of things were repaired/changed/installed.
So there is a lot of testing to be done.
Then we fish!

Read the thread in the boat section to get your answer.

Also, that's what I did in the meantime - bought three LA deep cycle batteries to get by on for now.

But go read the other thread.

Not reading 14 pages lol!  I guess you are replacing 3 batts with 1 lithium?  Would love to do that on my boat 2 batts, but can't stomach that price! :D

The cost is far less with lithium over the long term. And even the short term in my case. In just a year I have basically torched my 3 group 31 batteries. I was getting 12 hours when I first installed them this time last year. Now I get about 5 hours before I have basically drained my batteries. Deep discharging them really trashes them, not an issue with lithium.

I'm shopping for another boat and wonder how many batteries and how big of a spot lock for this.

Look at the Minn Kota 87" Riptide Terrova.
36V, 112# thrust.
It will do the job.

Also, I would consider 200AH lithium.
Anyone tells you the battery is too expensive, show them how much money you have in the boat and tell them the trolling motor was $3k.
Go big or stay at home.

BTW, nice boat.
