Tollling motor runs extremely slow....

5 posts in this topic

The battery appears to be fine.

What would cause the motor to be really slow? Just wore out?

Take the prop off and check for line wrapped around the propeller shaft. My trolling motor was tripping my breaker all the time on a short trip last week. Got home and actually had to use a rubber mallet to remove the prop, there was a boatload of superbraid and weeds wrapped up in there.

A bad connection is also a possibility.

The weeds might be it....

It was working fine until my nephew borrowed the boat to fish bass in the weeds.

I am having the same issue. I just bought the boat in March and 1st time I brought it out I thought it would go over 2 mph. Now, top speed is 1.3 - 1.5 mph. Sunday I had it and went into the weeds and it just stopped. It's a 24 volt. I seen that the breaker was tripped on one of the batteries and flipped it and it started working. The other battery was fine.

Question, shouldn't it still work with one battery if that is the case? It's almost like it's just running on one or something.
