Minn Kota Terrova wire gauge question

Recommended Posts

I need to extend my new Terrova (55lb) wire leads to the battery.  The Minn Kota chart indicates which gauge wire to use for the extensions.  I'm going to use 6 gauge wire because I have it.

 

The directions indicate that the extension is from the wire leads to the battery, so can I confirm that I can just splice the 6 gauge wire to the factory leads?

 

Thanks.

Just a thought: I saw on another topic where you said you'd bought a Tracker Pro Guide V-16 .

 

If you haven't already plunked down your money...or taken delivery...of the 55# Terrova...you might want to consider going up to the 80#.

 

I ran an 55# on a Tracker V-14 for a season or so...and I was frequently running out of battery power by the end of the day.

I own a tracker pro guide v16 and i upgraded to an 80 lb TM and it makes all the difference use the 6 gauge if you go with the 80ln thrust. The downside is you can only fit group 24 batteries in it but i can run all day in a 20mph wind no problems. A 12volt system won't move the boat very well or long.
