Every trolling motor owner will need to deal with issues with their plug or receptacle at some point. Many boat manufacturers cheap out on the factory plug, and in general, there are plenty of substandard plug installations that will eventually corrode or require new wiring or a new plug or receptacle.
When you do your research, you will quickly find that there are two main competitors in this market. The Marinco 12VCPS3 kit, and another plug and receptacle combo known as the Battery Tender.
This video provides an unbiased view of the good and bad of both plug and receptacle kits. We believe there are reasons to use either plug under certain circumstances, and there are different things to keep in mind when you use one versus the other.
As always, the pros at Golden Channels are here to answer any question you have, and comments are always welcome.
