Trolling Motor Reversed?

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys, recently our 70lb thrust PowerDrive2 started going in reverse. Why? It works, but we have to reverse the directions, and I know it's not doing the battery life any good. And also, which way does the prop spin when it's going forward? Clockwise right? It does that OUT of the water, but still goes in reverse IN the water. Any ideas?

Did you hook up your battery backwards?

when mine did that the polarity got reversed after i had it repaired..it was hooked up bckward inside the motor...but if yours is just doing it without anybody working on it..that is strange..not sure if the polarity can just change on itself..

Sounds like it's time for a call to Fish Lectonics or Motor clinic...
