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.

    • It's not optimum for home defense or hunting either. Basically just lower cost plinking.    As far as Bushmaster, they make ok guns for sure. But personally the fact that they are owned by a venture capital firm who tried but failed to sell them off some time ago, they are more than likely controlled by bean counters rather than gun enthusiasts and that generally doesn't bode well for quality.

    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
