foot control on a powerdrive

5 posts in this topic

took the boat out the other day and i could only turn right with my trolling motor so i borrowed my cousins foot control and that was the problem-she works great with his. question is- is there anyway to have my pedel fixed or do i have to find a new one?

That is an all to commom problem on the powerdrive. I'm on my 3rd and last one. When it goes out again, and I'm sure it will, I'm going to add the co pilot and use the remote feature. I know of guys dunking the foot pedal in the water or taking it apart and cleaning the contacts. If it's under warranty you can get a new foot pedal that way or just buy a new one yourself.

Try the hand held cabled remote! smile.gif

They work great and are practically flawless! laugh.gif

Much better then the foot control. tongue.gif

I clip it on my windshield and operate it from there.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.
