Question about Minn Kota Riptide St Saltwater 80 Bow Mount Trolling Motor

1 Answer

The turn feature on my remote trolling motor will not work

Originally, I thought it was from low power but the thrust has full power and the batteries are fully charged and set for 24 volts. When I press the turn buttons on the remote, it makes a momentary hum (like it normally would when turning), but nothing moves. Any thoughts?

    Squipps, thanks for the response but the prop is clear and running full speed. The problem is the directional turning (left and right) does not respond.

Hey Rob,, ??? ..Did you have the batteries CCA checked?? Cold Cranking Amps..?.. this is the only check to determine if your batteries are actually "good"...Next, take a volt meter and check the voltage at the trolling motor connection..if you have voltage at the plug, its time to move up to the head of the trolling motor...Since I do not know what brand if trolling motor we are working on.. these guys will take care of you from here...

I have a Motor Guide Brute 767, 67 lb thrust 24 volt trolling motor. It will only run at about half speed even with new batteries.


I believe you may have a bad low voltage circuit board problem. I do not think they make the board any longer but you may be able to convert it to work by bypassing the circuit board. I am working on one now.

Why does my Minn Kota Vantage trolling motor act up.


If this is a foot control model, try cleaning the connection where it plugs up. I have cleaned mine but I still have to fidget with it every time to get it to work right.

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.

I would check the battery. If you're using an old or under charged battery you will loose power for sure. Make sure you're also using a 12v deep cycle marine battery as this will ensure proper operation and a longer battery life.
