    Default Quick disconnect plug for trolling motor?

    For my 14' canoe. I keep the battery in the front and have a long set of wire to reach the trolling motor in the back. Every trip, I unroll the wire through the canoe but am hoping to more permanently instal the wire via some clips and then to install a quick-connect 2 prong plug mounted in the rear. I'll re-wire the trolling motor wire to a shorter lead to the male end of the plug. Anyone using anything like this that can recommend an appropriate plug?
    Thanks!

    Here's what I used

    local auto store should carry these as they are a commonly used plug in cars for years.

    You need to make sure that the wire size is large enough to carry the amps needed for your motor. I use one of those to power my fish finder which I don't leave in the boat when not fishing.

    I found one similar to the above, but with 8 gauge wire. I think that should be sufficient.

    Thx again-

    I took one of the heavy ones and one of the smaller ones, put ring connectors on the ends, and taped them together to make a wiring harness I can connect to the battery. Then I can easily plug in the motor and the fish finder, which have matching plugs. Works well.

    I second this. I used something similar for my kayak. If you look online you can find them with caps to protect the plugs when disconnected.
