3®Trolling Motor Connector -Female Boat Side7648Installation InstructionsAttwood marine hardware, navigational lighting, bilge pumps, andother marine accessories are specified more than any other brandby America’s best-known boat manufacturers as original equipment.Look to Attwood for quality replacement parts and marine accessories.SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONSForm Number 69229 Rev. B 03-12FEATURESAttwood’s Female Trolling Motor Connector (Boat Side) is designedto make quick, safe connections and disconnections between anelectric trolling motor and a boat’s power source.This female connector is compatible to, and mates with, Attwood’sMale Trolling Motor connector (Motor Side), model number 7647.Ideal replacement for similar two-wire or three-wire connectors.CAUTION1. Since trolling motors can be 12-volt only, 24-volt only, or dual24/12-volt, only the necessary wiring connections need to be made.2. If you are wiring this female connector to mate with an existingmale connector, verify that the pin patterns match perfectly andthe existing connector is wired so that pin voltages correspond tothose displayed in your trolling motor owner’s manual. If they donot correspond, one connector or the other must be rewired sothat they do match. Or the existing unmatched male connectorcan be replaced with Attwood’s Male Trollling Connector (partnumber 7647).NEVER SHORT ONE WIRE OR CONNECTOR PIN TO ANOTHER.IMPROPER WIRING COULD CAUSE DAMAGE TO TROLLINGMOTOR AND/OR BATTERY.3. Wire a fuse or circuit breaker into each positive wire near thebattery. See trolling motor owner’s manual for correct fuse size.Dual voltage motors will require a fuse for each positive wire.4. Route and secure wires so that wire insulation will not be worn away.Figure 1Figure 2(-) Ground(Black)(-) Ground(Black)(+) 24 VDC(Light Blue)(+) 12 VDC(Yellow)(+) 12 VDC(Yellow)(+) 24 VDC(Light Blue)Male ConnectorFront ViewFemale ConnectorFront ViewWARNINGRead Trolling Motor Owner’s Manual before proceeding.

Refer to your dealer authorized service center.TOOLS AND MATERIALS REQUIRED FOR INSTALLATION1. Power drill with 1-1/8" diameter bit and 9/64 diameter bit2. Screwdriver3. Wire insulation stripping tool4. Wire crimping tool or pliers with smooth, unserrated jaws5. Two #8 pan-head screws6. Additional 10-gauge wire, if extra wire is necessary7. Three wire butt connectors for 10-gauge wire, if necessary8. Electrical tape9. Waterproof sealant (silicone rubber or polyurethane caulk)INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONSNOTE: This female connector is normally installed in the boat, noton the trolling motor.1. Verify that this female connector mates with the male connectorinstalled, or to be installed, in your boat. PINS AND PIN VOLTAGESON BOTH CONNECTORS MUST MATCH (see Figures 1 and 2).2. Select a suitable location to mount this female connector. Themounting location should be in a non-structural area so the boatwill not be weakened. Mounting area should have a nearly verticalsurface to prevent water entry into the connector, and the areashould provide for easy access to wires while allowing for simplewire routing to the battery(s).3. Drill a 1-1/8" hole in the desired location. Insert the female connectorwith the door hinge upward, and mark the location of each of thetwo mounting holes with pencil or scribe. Set the connector aside.Drill a 1/8" diameter hole at each of the scribed areas.4. Install a splice connector on each of the 3 wires on the trollingmotor connector. Firmly crimp the splice connector onto the wireusing a crimping tool or smooth-jawed pliers. Performing thisprocedure on all three wires helps prevent short circuits, even ifonly 2 wires are needed.5. Strip the insulation from each of the additional 10-gauge wires tobe used 1/4" to 5/16".6. Following the color code shown in FIGURES 1 and 2, inserteach stripped wire end into the corresponding insulated splice.Securely crimp each splice connection with a crimping toolwhich will not damage the splice insulation. Wrap electrical tapearound each splice connection for additional insulation.7. On a 12-volt system either cut off or fold back the light blue wireand tape it out of the way.8. On a 24-volt system either cut off or fold back the yellow wireand tape it out of the way.9. A fuse or circuit breaker must be installed on each positive (+)wire. (See trolling motor owner’s manual for the correct fuse orcircuit breaker size.)10. After applying waterproof sealant (silicone rubber or polyurethanecaulk) to the back of the face plate, insert the female connector(wire assembly first) into the previously drilled hole keepingscrew mounting holes lined up with previously drilled pilot holes.11. Install the two #8 screws.12. Route the wiring to the battery area securing them along theroute to prevent insulation abrasion and wear. Completeconnections to the battery(s).CAUTIONThe following electrical schematics are for reference onlyand do not necessarily represent the hook up required foryour electrical accessory.
