SOURCE: Motorguide Trolling motor has low thrust in all five speeds

I have a 4 speed with 48 lbs of thrust. On mine, 1 through 3 will move me out pretty well, however, 4th is similar to an overdrive gear in a car or truck and is meant more for maintaining a speed with less draw on the amps.

I certainly wouldn't want to take off with it. I suspect it is the same with your 5 speed. The boat needs to be up to speed and then those two gears will maintain it, with 5th being optimal as far as low draw in amperage.

The motor should work without the circuit breaker for a test. The breaker is a safety device to protect the motor and wires if something malfunctions.

SOURCE: wanting to install motorguide 24v trolling motor

I have installed a selectable 12/24 volt trolling motor on my boat. When in the 24 volt mode, the motor works well for about 3-4 minutes the loses all power. After about a 15-20 minute "cooling off period" the motor will work again for about 3-4 minutes. In the 12 volt mode, the motor works well all the time, only at about half the speed of the 24 volt mode. Why is my motor losing all power in the 24 volt mode?

SOURCE: On my standard motorguide trolling motor the

put the motor in the water and ensure that the propeller is at the rear. On the head of the unit (where the direction indicator is) push down and turn the round plastic plate (this plate has the direction indicator on it) clockwise until the direction indicator mark (mine is blue and is about one inch long) is in line with the alignment bar on the non-moveable part on the head. You will hear several "clicks" and this means that the indicator plate is clicking around to the proper directional alignment with the motor in the water.

SOURCE: I have a motorguide trolling motor and the front

With the top off take the six screws out and lift the cable and gear out. Next put your foot pedal at mid position. Then make sure the motor is pointed forward and reinstall the slider gear and the six screws. Last put the top on and make sure the arrow indicator is pointing forward and thats it.

There should be a couple of allen screws on the shaft that you can loosen, which should allow you to swing the motor head in the direction you want it to be pointing for the desired pedal position. Tighten and carry on.
