There are only 2 things that have to be assembled on your trolling motor before you can use it out of the box: the circuit breaker and propeller. After these are installed you can connect your trolling motor to your battery and you are ready to go! Please read below for information and instructions on how to assemble these parts.


Please see our Propeller Installation Guide for instructions or our Propeller Installation Video on how to assemble your propeller. 

Circuit Breaker:

Your Circuit Breaker will be located inside the propeller box packaging. Take the positive wire extending from your trolling motor and attach it to the red terminal on the circuit breaker. Then attach the short 6” red wire extending from the circuit breaker and connect it directly to the positive terminal of your battery.
