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.

      169 overpass (293rd or county 9) north of Zimmerman...take the off ramp and go east (right) to county 19 take a right going south through the S curve and hang a left at the end of S curve on 289th Ave take that about 2 miles to Blue Lake Dr take a right and then take your first left a couple blocks later to the landing.

      We're a little over a week away from the 6th annual LCRA Ice Fishing contest on Lake Gervais in Little Canada, MN! Lots of great prizes, over $10,000 in prizes and raffle. Grand prize for fishing is a Marcum flasher, a Clam X200 flip over thermal and an Eskimo auger! Come on out Saturday, February 4th, noon to 3pm. Line up early for a good spot, the tent will open by 9am with beverages (alcohol and non-alcohol), food and raffle tickets. The raffle is the LCRA's winter raffle. $5 tickets, grand prize is a trip to Vegas and $1,000 cash! You don't have to be present to win in the raffle, that will be drawn after the prizes for the fishing contest around 4pm that day.   The Little Canada Recreation Association is a non-profit group that raises money to offset registration fees for youth in the Little Canada, Roseville, Maplewood and Vadnais Heights areas.

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.
