I have a 2003 Bass Tracker with this trolling motor and noticed recently that when I try to put it in rabbit mode it doesn't have the same thrust as it used to. Nothing else has changed, the battery is good and last all day as before, the other dial settings work as they should. Any ideas?
The only difference between a little girls scream and a warrior's battle cry is the direction your'e running!

Two possible causes.

1. Corrosion on wiring limiting the amperage available on hi power. When motor on high check voltage at motor to see if its low.

2. Worn brushes inside motor. It will effect all speeds but most noticeable on high. Not sure how much its been used.
