Minn Kota Model 35, Please Help

Recommended Posts

Hello I inherited a Minn Kota and Jon boat from my uncle that died 2 weeks ago. Its a model 35 transom mount with 24 lb thrust. It has a plug in much like a home plug in. I contacted MK with no success. Need to know how to hook this up to a marine battery on the boat. Thank you.

Cut the plug off.  Put circle electrical ends on, connect red wire to positive and black wire to negative on the battery.

Before you cut the plug off, check the boat for a receptacle that the plug fits. The boat may have been wired to use that plug.

The motors don't come with plugs, just ring terminals. The plug is on the power cord for a reason.

Either do what is mentioned above or you'll need a really really long one of these ~

No receptacle so I don't know how they were using it. I'll cut the plug and get the terminals. Ok, so what's the best battery? I saw an Ever start Marine battery at Walmart for $70. Will any battery work or does it have to be a marine battery with higher amps?
