Default Is A Fuse Required For A Trolling Motor?

It's crucial to install a fuse or circuit breaker on your trolling motor to guard against damage in the event that it overheats or experiences stress. Either a circuit breaker or a fuse can be installed. In order to protect your trolling motor from harm in the case that it is overworked or overheated, you must install a fuse or circuit breaker. By doing this, you can steer clear of future expensive repairs or replacements.This will keep your motor operating efficiently and eliminate any unforeseen shutdowns. Usually paired with a fishing boat, it makes it possible to propel the vessel without the need of an oar or paddle.Since a trolling motor is not linked to the boat's electrical system, it normally does not require a fuse.

Ok, now I'm confused. Do I need a fuse or not. You start off saying I need a fuse then say I don't.

I think he's lost and doesn't realize what forum he's on. I've never used a fuse on any of my trolling motors. I don't know if a permanently mounted one uses a fuse or not as I've never had one.

Talking

A electric trolling motor never requires a fuse and it does not qualify as a extra propulsion devise a Oar is still required by coast guard . im a 59 year boater in Michigan talking from experience also a certified boat Mechanic .OP is completely WRONG

Default Is A Fuse Required For A Trolling Motor

It is highly recommended that a circuit breaker or fuse be used when installing a trolling motor. It is usually electric-powered and has a variable speed control. Many trolling motors also have a reverse function.
