Default charging options??

I recently purchased a 2015 Lund Rebel XL with a 50 Yamaha 4 stroke tiller. The boat came with a 12 volt bow mount Minnkota. The bow mount probably won't get a lot of use compared to the 50. What would be the best way to keep the TM battery topped up using the Yamaha? Also how accurate are the gauges on the Minnkota? Thanks.

This what your looking for. While a bigger motor will throw more amps to your single 12 volt battery, your 50's output will be more than ample to keep your battery topped off. I will be installing this unit on my boat. Installation is simple...connect one side to your starting battery and the other to your trolling motor battery. Once your starting battery is topped off, this unit will automatically open a circuit to your trolling battery. There will be no back feed from your trolling motor battery to your starting battery. I've had this unit on a prior boat.

that unit looks good. I was going to recommend he use a combiner on his batteries. but this unit is priced about the same.
