    I have 2 batteries mounted in the bow, wired in series to run my 80lb riptide. Can I connect another 12v device to one of these batteries without causing a problem? My volt meter tells me it will work but I need some practical advice.

    i have the same setup, you can use each 12v individually, use the pos and neg from battery 1 or the positive and negative from battery 2. I am running my electronics on battery 1.
