Just may be the best customer support on the planet

I have owned other Newport trolling motors and they all have been teriffic. I upgraded a boat requiring a larger trolling motor. I got the 86lb thrust 24-volt motor and it is super powerful. It came with a recommended 50 amp fuse and I had a problem with the motor tripping the circuit breaker. I tried other 50 amp breakers with the same result. I contacted customer service and they worked like crazy to identify the problem. They finally decided that a 60 amp circuit breaker might solve the problem and it did. Nothing is overheating and the motor performs perfectly. I use lithium batteries so the battery level display on the motor is not accurate (it will always show a full charge until trolling motor just stops) but that is a really minor issue. Strongly recommend Newport motors - and lithium batteries for the length of time motors will run compared to lead or AGM batteries. with the same amperage. Lithium is just so much more efficient... and light!! Thanx, Newport!

Awesome Trolling Motor!

I bought the 55# for my 12' jon boat and it really scoots the thing around. Very happy with the purchase.
