Default Autotether for trolling motor

So I know it works for th key ignition, but does anyone know if it can control your main battery in some sort of alternate rigging configuration?
Going to be fishing by myself and if I feel off while trolling, I may not be able to catch up swimming.

I assume you mean using another motor such as a kicker or trolling motor.

You could move the lanyard to that kill switch. If it does not have a kill switch it would be easy to make.

Or buy 2.

Yes. I am referring to an electric trolling motor (bow mounted).

Then you would have to rig a kill switch if not already provided for trolling motor.

It would be quite simple to rig one kill switches to both load sources. Just a little wiring. That's it. Then one switch kills both sources
