Should you unplug trolling motor when charging batteries

I have heard both ways


Hypothetically yes…

but speaking from my own personal experience? I essentially plug my boat in every time I get back to the dock without bothering to ensure my motor is shut off…don’t think it’s ever caused an issue for me

I would suspect the only reason it may be said because "some" people forget/neglect/insert adjective to ensure their trolling motor is actually shut off and not drawing power.  It would result in a long time before the battery(ies) are fully charged again. Wasn't pointing at Akrisoner, you just happened to mention it.
