My current Minnkota Maxxum control fits in the recessed tray I had installed at the carpet shop but I'm not sure I could get a Terrova control in there. I'm SURE people have a Terrova and foot control in a recessed tray?

I remember someone putting it in a tray but think it was custom. Would be really hard to use all the buttons inside a tray. I think most people use the remote so like me wouldn't need s tray

This is just my experience,,,,, I'm sure others are different.
My Terrova foot control will NOT fit where my other MK foot control did in the tray on my Skeeter.
there are flanges that make the fit not work and then you cant get to the buttons to turn the TM left and right. I had to make a plexi-glass plate to cover the tray and mount the foot control to that. Since you use the two buttons, one left & one right to steer the TM it really isn't bad at all.
You really do not want a Terrova foot control sitting in a tray ...... IMHO.

I don't think you would want to do that if it even worked.
The Terrova pedal sits almost flat and you don't have to lift you foot but an inch to use it. If it was in a recessed well you would actually have to step down to it and that would be pretty awkward.

I have done this on three boats. Fill it in and screw down the foot controller and your set. Its the best imop. With back troubles I can still run it all day. What boat do you have ?

Well shoot a monkey. I guess that means the new 'Ulterra' won't really work in a recessed foot well either! That stinks....they need to make some modification or offer a 'fix' ...

My Terrova was in a recess but I had built a raised tray in order to have the 2 side buttons almost level with the deck. I have done the same with my Xi5 remote. Almost (almost) seems pointless to go through the trouble of cutting the deck then filling the recess almost to the top with a tray but for me it works great...

I got a special made 'insert' for my Ranger188 from diamond sports marine, heavy aluminum and carpet covered. fits perfect, I bolted the foot control
to it and it looks and works great. about $38..

That kinda sucks as I JUST had a recessed tray put in when I had my carpet done. jKWho may have the best solution though. It sounds like your pedal is still recessed but basically is level with the deck more or less?
I thought I saw the Terrova could be heel/toe or the left/right buttons? Is it easier to just do the left/right buttons rather than the old way of heel/toe?

I used a 2x6 that was cut to length and covered it with non skid material you get at hardware store and worked great on the Skeeter I use to have. I don't think you want a Terrova foot petal in a recessed tray, that are low profile IMO.

I emailed Minn Kota and asked if there was a 'fix in the works' for not just the Terrova but the Ulterra as well.
Reply not good. They have nothing in the works and their only retort is to put a 'filler' in the recessed foot well and a mount of some kind (plywood ??) and mount to that
bang

God Bless

Yes. The heel/toe method isn't the same since it is a on/off button rather than pressure that a cabke mount uses. If you aren't familiar with it, don't mount your pedal yet. I find the remote is all that I need and the foot control is just sitting in the corner of the deck out of the way. I know several who put it in storage just in case the remote fails.

The few times I have used the foot control, it was the front buttons as I had more control than the heel/toe method

I have never even hooked up my Terrova foot control. I use the remote exclusively. I can operate the motor from anywhere in the boat and I have nothing sitting on the deck to get in the way. I used to stow it in the boat in the case of an emergency but after 3 years I removed it because it was just taking up space.
