I would take into account what Joe said and also there is alot of chatter on mechanic websites that the newest and greatest deep cycle batteries are overtaxing outboard charging systems and ruining the components. Like I said, this is a recent topic and not definitive but some of what is being said makes sense.

I would use it to charge your battery for your electronics and not your deep cycle. my personal opinion is that by the time your trolling motor is drained the bite is off anyway. Unless you have an old tired battery which would not get a significant recharge from your alternator anyway.

Also, it is not a good idea to use a standard car battery for the trolling motor. Once you drain it past a certain level it is ruined.
