What the poor word usage is going on with my boat

5 posts in this topic

My wife just calls and tells me the motor is tilting up and trying to make a hole in the garage door... So I think something must be hitting one of the tilt/trim switches so Itell her to push down on the one on the motor ... nothing ok uncover the one on the throttle ... nothing ok uncover the front of the boat by the trolling motor great it quits but nothing was hitting it. She calls back I have the garage door open but the #%$## thing is doing it again. OK go up to the switch by the trolling motor again and push down on it again to get it to stop. Than I walk her through pulling the wires off the battery. So now that the motor is no longer possessed do I have a bad switch somewhere? Where do I start?

You need a new trim relay. Cheap and easy fix. You just need to find if it is the relay in the throttle box or on the motor (if you have a trim button there). Ours was on our motor, and it would go off on hot and humid days. You could do just the relay ($20) or the whole trim assembly for more $$. I personally would do the whole trim assembly, easier but costs a bit more.

good luck, if you tell what motor it is somebody here can probably even give you the part number or how to change it.

-sounds like it might be the one on your bow that is going funky. Start there.

There's two trim relays - one for up and one for down, and they're both on the motor. The rest are just two position momentary switches.

Regardless, follow the blue wire (blue = up, green = down, red=power) and the red wire to a relay, take it into the dealer and get a new one. A pretty easy fix.

You may need to remove a black plastic cover under the hood, probably the RH side, to get at the relays.

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible.
