Has anyone had problems with power poles drawing down your battery during normal usage?

I can see how it would, while its down. I would put another battery on ur boat or tie it in w/ the trolling motor batteries.

You may have a bad battery, or something else going on with the electrical. They don't draw much power at all and then only when raising or lowering.

I use mine a lot and I have one of those really small batteries they put in poling skiffs. I've never had a problem.

Should not pull that much voltage, on the starting battery. You might have another problem, would have to rig a Amp meter in like of the p.p. and run it and check the amps, Do not know the draw, but thier tech dept. can tell you. If just installed, I would have them check it.,
