Hi again,Trolling motor question, I have a Motor Guide 65V, 24-36 volt on my 896 Savage, only have 2 trolling batteries so I know it's wired for 24 volts only. My problem is the trolling motor doesn't have much power, I checked the bats. and the connections and everthing seems ok. the bat voltage is 12.80. the only thing I can think of is that they wired the bats. so that the motor is 12 volts. the red and orange wires run to 2 50 amp breakers then to the trolling motor and the black - cables run right to the trolling motor. I thought the black neg wire was supposed to go to the pos. of the other bat. to make it 24 volt, If I have you guys confused ask questions I check in frequently, THANKS
