I was just cruising out of a creek to run to another spot and it just stopped working. My connections are brand new and so are my batteries I could see no obvious problems. Nothing burnt or smoking. Anyone have any ideas on what happened? Switch went bad or?? Thanks

Possible fuse blown? Maybe bumped on off switch. Check the plug in area. Buy an ultrex... what I need to do!

Should be a fuse on the hot wire at the battery so it wont blow. Switch on the side could be culprit too. Is there a fuse in the plug? Check that also.

When you installed the hook up to the batteries:
- You should have put a 50 amp. square block breaker on the main hot wire post, then then connect the TM hot wire to that block on the first battery.
- This block has a small button that pops out when the breaker cuts the power.
- Sometimes one will install a 30 amp. breaker that will be too week to run the motor on high for a long distance and it will POP the breaker every time.
- If you failed to put a breaker on the main lead battery post then the next week spot is the plug.
- Inside the Plug is a small clear window so you can visibly see a silver flat relay jumper. This relay is probably burnt and requires a new Plug.
- If you did not use a plug-in and wired the TM direct then your next week spot is the switch on the Foot Peddle. These switches are even bad about burning out if you leave the TM plugged in while charging the batteries over night. Always un-plug the TM to charge or if you have it wired direct make sure the speed knob is to ZERO on the Peddle or OFF position. This toggle switch may also have an OFF position on some motors; making sure it is in the OFF position while charging will stop the current traveling through out your system from getting to the Mother Board.

I carry a spare microswitch in the boat. I've had to change it on the water a few times.

I hate photobucket.
