When my peddle is straight (level) my trolling motor veering to the right. How do I adjust the peddle so when peddle is level the trolling motor is going straight

Level the peddle, loosen collar, turn head. Keep peddle level and directional arrow straight ahead.

A bit more in depth way to go, remove the top cover of the trolling motor head, where the arrow is. You will see several gears. Lift the main gear out, twist to desired position, reseat gear.

Really easy to do.


I'd you ever have to replace a broken cable, this is how you line it back up once complete. Easy DIY job

Top cover is the way to go it will give you equal travel. only thing I'd add is to tape the cables into their grooves so you don't have to worry about them popping off and loosen the cable adjustment under the peddle will make getting it on/off a cinch.

More than Likely you just need to twist the head. loosen your mount and twist it till it is straight.
