Regular Lubrication Not Needed
Our trolling motors do not use gears; therefore, they will not require any recurring maintenance of lubrication to function. However, if you find yourself working on the lower motor compartment and think lubrication will fix your issue, we recommend using Lithium Grease. You can apply lubrication to the Bearing (Part #23) or the drive-shaft that the propellers install onto.
For other metal parts on the mount, WD-40 is excellent to use for cleaning and lubricating.
