My new cannon lake troll line counter doesn't seem to work? What is up, am i doing something wrong. This counter is on the boom and not as simple as the easi-troll...HELP

Make sure the cable is actually running in the pulley. The pulley is geared to the counter, so if the cable isn't turning the pulley, the counter won't be working.
It is quite possible to add a simple counter like the Unitrol series. (key #'s 12 & 13)
Here's a schematic for both:
Cannon Laketrol
Cannon Unitrol
Hope this helps!

A)will not work at all,had radio shack test out the fuse and switch;said they were fine,direct wired motor to batteryand the motor worked fine in both directions and b)have another downrigger that once the...

I may be able to suggest a cure for downrigger #1. The switches sometimes have several terminals and they work differently than they look.
For example, if you have 6 terminals, 3 on each side of the switch. The left bottom and right bottom are a pair. The middle two are a pair and the top two are a pair. Then you have terminals that are separate on the right side with the middle terminal being common and the pair being right lower and middle, right upper and middle with corresponding left side action.

This point being that the switch for unit #1 is good as tested by Radio Shack. Its where you stick the wires on the terminals that is the problem.

You need a multitester and use an OHM setting without juice flowing through your wires. This way you can figure out the pairings of the terminals without burning something up.
