kicker motor setup (mainly wiring)

Recommended Posts

with a fathers day approval from the wife I'm picking up a bigfoot 9.9 kicker and realized I'm not sure if there are any special requirements for running the leads from the charging unit to my battery switch without some sort of isolation diode to prevent backfeeding from the main motor. anyone know if something like this is needed? I think it would be fine with never running both motors at the same time but not sure if both were charging the same bank at the same time if that will hurt one of them.

as far as gas goes I'm planning on adding a new fule/water seperator and using the second supply from that to run the kicker.

anything else I need to look at? motor comes with ez steer and panther tilt bracket already.
