    • This motor model does not have a Reverse function. To ride in a reverse, motor need to be rotated 180 degree with a remote, or simply make 180 degree turn with a boat. To prevent motor jumping out of the water if it turned 180 degrees in a reverse, it is important that tilt level knobs are fully tightened on both sides, so that motor stays firmly in place. Click here for the assembly of tilt level mechanism.
    • When changing directions, press left or right button toward direction of the desired turn, and once turn is complete, simply press opposite direction button to return motor into strait forward position to proceed with a set course, same way as you would normally do with a regular type of outboard motor. For example, if you want to make right turn, press right arrow number of times, and once turn is fully completed, press left arrow button same number of times to return motor into strait moving direction.
    • We strongly recommend installing a $3 Quick Battery Disconnect in order to be able to easily turn off power to the motor in a situation that wireless connection between FOB and motor is suddenly lost due to low remote battery, radio interference or malfunctioning remote, while you are under way. In this situation you can easily disconnect power to the motor to kill the engine and take over your vessel with alternative means of propulsion, such as oars for example.

Bolted a light duty outboard bracket (Garelick

It is a great Item,,,but the shaft is too short to work with 20 inch transoms,,, there are also 25 inch transoms out there,,, why are they forgotten about,,, with its measurements it will only work with 15 inch transoms and smaller,,, all you had to do was make the shaft longer,,, what is so hard about that?

Electric Trolling Motors FAQ.

Trolling motor is the perfect add-on for your inflatable boat. When going out on the water for a day of fishing, there’s no greater tool to have at your disposal than an electric trolling motor. But there are many things about these simple motors that people do not understand, such as how long they can run on a single battery charge, or how powerful of a motor they need for their particular boat. But with just a little bit of research, you can find answers to these two all-important questions. Then you can select your trolling motor, attach it to your inflatable boat, and be out enjoying a day of fishing in no time.

How Long Can My Trolling Motor Run on a Battery Charge?

This is probably the most common question about these motors. And before spending your hard-earned money on one, you should first make sure you know all the facts. You probably want your motor to last as long as possible on a single charge, so you will need to look at the two important specs. These are the battery’s “amperage hour rating” and the motor’s “amps drawn.”

The amperage hour rating is a measure of how long the battery will supply consistent amperage to the motor. The higher the rating, the longer a battery will be able to power a motor. So what does this actually mean? It means that, for example, a 100 amperage hour battery would be able to supply 25 amps of power for 4 hours before running out. Or if your trolling motor was drawing less amps, let’s say 10, the battery could power the motor for 10 hours. It’s just that simple.

The other important piece of information to factor in when trying to figure out how long your trolling motor will power your boat on a single charge is the motor’s amps drawn. This is the “amps” part of the equation above. So, for example, if you have an 80 amp battery that’s powering a trolling motor that draws 40 amps per hour at top speed, then your motor will be able to propel your boat at top speed for 2 hours.

How Powerful of a Motor Do I Need?

This is the second most common question people ask when shopping for a new trolling motor for their boat. And it is a very important question, since the size of the motor you choose will not only affect your boat’s speed, but also the length of time you can travel on a single battery charge. When trying to figure out how big a motor you need, remember that a motor’s power is rated by pounds of “thrust,” which tend to range from 30 pounds on the low end to 100 pounds on the high end.

When choosing the size of your motor, the number one thing to take into account is the weight of your boat. Most manufacturers say that you need 2 pounds of thrust for every 100 pounds of boat weight, which is a good guide point when purchasing your trolling motor. But don’t forget to add in the weight of the people and equipment that the boat will be carrying when you do your calculations! You also may want to factor in the types of weather conditions and currents that you will be operating in, as these can make a huge difference in the amount of power you need from your trolling motor. That’s why it’s always smart to overestimate a little when deciding how big of a motor you need to purchase.
