Foot control on a trolling motor

3 posts in this topic

I recently acquired a Minkota Genesis trolling motor. It's on a 24 volt system and has 74 lbs. of trust. Unlike my past trolling motors it does not have a head that moves and has a foot control that I call a "rocker-type" control. It's like a gas pedal- if you push the toe you move left, if you push the heal you move right. That's all fine, but I have one MAJOR PROBLEM with this foot control- if you don't keep your foot on it AT ALL TIMES it will fall all the way to the toe or heel position and you won't go the direction you were going. There must be some way to fix this, isn't there? If not, somebody who has never fished must have designed this thing. I'd like to be able to take my foot off the pedal and have it maintain it's course- how do I accomplish this?

On the bottom of the foot pedal there is a cap screw. Tightening this will increase the ammount of resistance on the pedal and should help your problem. You will need an allen wrench for the screw.
