if it is 24v. then you need to connect 2 battery in parallel. since the battery is only 12v.
if one battery is shoing red and the other is sohwing green, that means you are using 12v only, not the 24v.
connetion as follow:
positve of battery 1 to the motor, the negative of battery 1 to postive of battery 2. the negative of battery 2 to the motor.

I have uploaded a image of the wire system. folllow it carefully. the fuses rating should be no more than than thirty amp. go to your local outboard dealer they sell inline breakers that are designed for trolling motors. i prefer them because you don't have to replace them after a overload. you just reset the breaker.

Just like a flashlight. Positive to neg, In a loop going to the motor. That is the jump between the batteries, One red wire coming in from motor, it will go to pos, from one battery, the neg will go to the 2nd battery pos. From the 2nd battery neg will go to the motor. That is it, one jumper connecting the 2 batteries, will create the 24 volts. Hope this helps.

to get b24 volts from 2 x 12 volt batteries
connect the negative (- ) terminal of one battery to the ground point on the motor
next connect the positive terminal (+ ) of that same battery to the negative terminal of the next battery
connect the positive terminal of the last battery to the power terminal of the motor
so it will be negative to ground , positive to negative , positive to motor or motor control
(-) to ground (+ ) to (-) , (+) to motor
That is called a series connection and increases the voltage available
