What engine, 60, 75? Only 18 amp output on the 60. Thats not alot of charging. I assume that if you are going 55lb thrust you be using one battery? It should be pretty big at least a group 29? even better a 31. Of course you could do 2 batts in parallel.

Re: Trolling motor

I could be wrong but I don't think the inverter ,,if it came on the truck will even come close to running a charger of much any size.. How big of charger? Amp output of converter? And that will require keeping the engine running...its just a tough situation,, trying to charge with out ac power.

Re: Trolling motor

yes, what Marc and Oldchuck say..... all those brands are really 3 manufactures for the most ordinary lead acid wet batteries, we are excluding the "exotics" here. I just went down to O'reileys and picked up 2 of their 27 marine deep cycles. I'm sure they are fine. Was looking hard at interstate but...
