Here is a picture of the wire connection for 24 volt. Compare to yours is it correct? If it is, I wish you listed make and model I could of sent you the right picture diagram of you motor. Use this picture as a starting point. Test the wires through the motor testing for 24 volts. Again if I knew make and model I could show you exactly were. Last if voltage is correct all the way through. The motor is the last thing to tear down. If the brushes or armeture is damaged in anyway, or manufactured wrong, it would lead to power loss.

I have uploaded a image of the wire system. folllow it carefully. the fuses rating should be no more than than thirty amp. go to your local outboard dealer they sell inline breakers that are designed for trolling motors. i prefer them because you don't have to replace them after a overload. you just reset the breaker.de79e02.jpg
