    Sounds more like a bad wiring connection on a power and or ground. Since they didn't determine the root of the problem, I'd guess you will certainly still have the issue until the root cause is...

    That sounds like a smart plan. I'll be installing a new jackplate and gauge soon and plan to do the same thing.

    I have my two Helix 12 units mounted on RAM D size mounts with absolutely no issues even in rough water.

    Is WRM the trailer manufacturer? I'd continue to be insistent and hell bent on making them address and fix this issue for you. Seems like they always try to take the "ignore it, and maybe it will...

    For years I ran Goodyear Marathon trailer tires on my boat trailer. After having continual issues, i.e., knots popping up on the tires, belts shifting, and a close call on a blow out while running...

    I would have come un-glued with that response from the dealer. My response to would have been "I want you to fix the damn thing"!!! I have ZERO patience for that kind of stuff these days. We pay...

    That's a typical dealer response. It really pisses me off that they are all smiles at the time of sale, but when you go back in with any problem what so ever, they don't want to deal with it. It's...

    You need to use sand in the zip lock bag, not water. I used a 1 gallon zip lock bag, filled it with sand and placed that over the top of the transducer puck. With the sand in the bag, you can...

    I strongly recommend trying to test different areas in your hull by weighting the puck down with a sand bag and covering the transducer with water until you find the optimum position to solve you...

    Mine is just the MotorGuide Tour 82, not the Tour Pro. I would think the same safety mech would be in both though, but maybe not.

    I am wishing you luck regarding finding the solution. I have been battling this issue for over a year and have tried everything possible to eliminate the RFI I am seeing on my mega 360 to no avail. ...

    They did indicate that too small of gauge wiring, or corrosion on the terminal plug prongs could cause excessive amp draw. You had mentioned regarding your assumption that maybe because you bumped...

    According to Motorguide, its a built in safety mechanism when/if your motor draws too many amps, not a wiring issue (unless your TM power leads are too small in gauge).

    Is your 24v tour one of the new models or one of the previous tour models? My older tour never had this issue and I didn't experience it until I installed the new model of the tour 82.

    I agree Keith. It's hard to believe that no one else has mentioned this up to this point. I watched several reviews by the pro's before deciding to order one of these new tours. Not once was this...

    Yep, this is a real issue in my opinion as well. To your point, usually when you are in a position to hit something with your motor, you are in a dire spot and need your trolling motor to keep on...

    Well, I can tell you from experience last week that every time my blade clipped a stump solidly, it shut my MG down. This happened to me at least half a dozen times last week. There were times when...

    I agree......somebody at Triton or the trailer manufacturer knows the details. Just have to get to the right person which may not be easy. Things like this should not be this hard................

    Yep this is exactly what I just recently experienced as well as described in the other link that Lowerider58 posted above. It's frustrating and a bit dangerous in my opinion. I'd rather the...

    I'm guessing that there is some sort of thermal protection device that is what I am experiencing during the times when my prop hit something based on the below info I read in the manual:

    I hope someone will chime in and advise. You are correct, it is a real PITA and everytime it crapped out on me was at critical times when the wind was howling and I was in a tight spot. I don't...

    I went by my local Lowes store this afternoon. No luck. They didn't have anything that would work or that looked like my current grommet.

    I'll check this out. Thanks for the info. Only thing though, my current existing grommet is not rubber. It's a nylon type hard plastic grommet. I'll look at Capo and see what they look like. ...
