Re: charging trolling motor batteries on the water
Isolators are old school technology today. There is an inherant voltage loss of .7 volts with an isolator.
An ACR or VSR would be a much better choice, however, when doing 12 volt chrg to a 24 volt system, I think that there's a better way to go.
You can use a 12/24 combinning system designed to separate the 12 from 24 while charging.
Jumper cables???? Nah!
I'd wire this in a more permanent fashion.
