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.

    • Yah - great looking decoys! MJ - I'm just letting you know I'm breaking into your house and stealing your spear rack.  And mount. I found a rickety old 5 tine when I cleaned out the garage.  I might give it a try this season.
    • I can't identify any of those for sure, and certainly wouldn't recommend eating any of them.  The first pic might be some older honey mushrooms, but it's pretty tough to tell.  I've got about 8 mushrooms that I can positively id.  Beyond that, it's just not worth being wrong.  There are still some fresh hen of the woods mushrooms around the metro if you get out into some oak woods.  You can find them around the base of big mature oaks and they are pretty easy to identify.  Found about 20 on Wednesday.  Many were a little old, but was able to take 4 nice ones home.  Here's a pic of one that I left behind.
    • I'm putting it on my calendar.  Don't forget the Nord Lord trophy since it has a new home to go to. 
    • Detroit News breaks 143 year tradition, endorses Gary Johnson.   The endorsement is the first time in the paper’s 143-year history it has endorsed someone other than the Republican Party’s nominee. http://www.breitbart.com/news/detroit-news-breaks-tradition-endorses-libertarian-gary-johnson/  
    • Kind of like Trump did Monday night.
    • Gets on a bunch of talk shows. Jumps another 5 points in the polls.. This just ain't working the way it's supposed to...
    • Looks like it's unanimous then. Good thing my vote goes to Hillary since it seems everyone thinks she is the best person for the job.
    • In your situation I'd try to be standing around the time you expect the deer to show up since it sounds like your upper body will have branch cover but not lose drawing ability. I usually set up off to the side and a little behind the tree from the direction I expect the deer to come from.  That way I get the full benefit of the cover of the tree I'm in. I stand a lot though; I rarely sit.  My ears tell me quite a bit but I'm usually looking around that tree all the time and my body is close to it.  I seem to be able to get away with quite a bit of movement and am rarely at 15 feet or higher.
