So seems like every time i take my new boat out something goes wrong weather or otherwise, i finally get out sunday with the intent of fishing all afternoon til i get some perch and the trolling motor dies. So what happens is when i drop my motor guide 45lb thrust in the water and set it to 4 or 5 and start using it, it starts to slow an almost just stop as if the battery is dead. it does not do this on anything below 3 but i did notice that 3 speed and down it isnt as strong as it normally is. i have had the boat out 4 other times with no issue the battery is still charged the fish finder reads 12.4vlts which is what it always is. After 20 min of searching online on the boat an a phone call i believe the problem is the relay? from what i can see the positive cable coming from the front of the boat to the battery is connected to a relay, about 1.5 inch box tht the + cable attaches to a small terminal then another terminal attaches to the + terminal on the battery, it seems like maybe this went bad since it worked before so i am thinking of replacing it for starters this motor is new barely used the outboard has less then 5hours even. Im no expert on electrical but what is the point of this relay? or whatever tht box is and is it even needed? on my old jon boat i connected the trolling motor right to the battery with the fish finder and had no problems. Should i look at a boating store for a new switch or a better one or can i just direct connect then cables?
