New VARIMAX digital

I have a new varimax 75lb thrust digital trolling motor that I purchased Nov 2012 with maybe 20 hours total on it that has already had control board replaced because they said I shouldn't hook up big foot pedal. Got it back and now after a couple of hours of running at low speed it starts to act up when I turn it up to full power. Starts clicking and the power meter starts jumping up and down and I don't get full power at all.

    I tested it without the circuit breaker today and still the same results. Is it possible that once the batteries start to loose power this could happen?

SOURCE: new MotorGuide VariMAX trolling motor does not run

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.

Replacement of motorguide trolling motor prop


Motor Guide hubs come in two different sizes - 3" and 3.5". The 3" size is more for older and lower thrust models. Newer units use the 3.5. The size differences are between manufacturers too. MinnKota's are a little bigger. If you order a new prop, the only issue may be the depth of the prop. I had to use a longer prop nut wrench to tighten the Hydrilla Hacker I purchased.
