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.

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.
    •     What one did you get???
    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.   
    • The new minn kota 300d didn't have the two 20ga wires so just spliced the black  to black and red to white from the charging cables, hooked all the batteries back up and everything is working again.
