Hi. I have a MotorGuide FW-FB 71LB 24V Trolling motor. I want to switch from my two 12v lead batteries to a single 24v lithium but i dont know if i can without hurting the trolling motor. Ive tried to find exact specs on amps and such on my trolling motor with no luck. Has anyone ever done this? any imput would be much appreciated! TIA!

If its a 24VDC motor, using a single 24VDC battery won't hurt the motor at all....

You size the battery (in amp*hours) based on your needs.

Most people use the 12VDC batteries as they represent the optimal portion of the supply-demand curve. I'd bet you are going to spend a small fortune getting that type of battery that has enough amp*hours....
