Default Wiring Issues/Questions

I want to upgrade my TM to a Terrova 24V with I-Pilot.

But I am not sure How or if I can do it with my present battery set-up.

I have a rear Stbd battery that is a Cranking/Starting battery.

Front Stbd is a Deep Cycle hooked to a 12V TM and some but I am not sure what 12 V accessories could be Livewell pumps, Fishfinder,running lights, Radio, and on board charger I just got this boat last Aug and have not a chance to check things out!

Front Port battery is a deep Cycle hookeed to the Front Stbd battery and into the on board charger

So if I change the TM to 24V can I get 12V out of this set up to run the current 12V accessories?

Sure. Just make sure your 12V negative lead is at the same point as your 24V negative lead (the far left one, as shown below) then you can get 12V from the first battery positive terminal.
