Question about MotorGuide STANDARD MOTOR REPLACEMENT PARTS SWITCHES AND COMPONENTSDescript
Could not retract tm out of the water. Stuck in down position. Took to dealer and found that latching pins were sliding out to one side (port) and binding against the inside of the bracket housing. Had to take a screwdriver and wedge between housing and end of pins to pry back into proper position before you could get it to release with pull rope.
Dealer said they had the same model of tm as mine come in the previous day with the same problem.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
