Great customer service

It took a few weeks to get it but NV backed their product under warranty and replaced my 50A circuit breaker with a 60A breaker which I discovered was necessary to run my 55A X series motor on speed 5 without "popping"

I notice you gave a great review, but only 1 star! If you feel like the service was as awesome as you described it to be, will you kindly update your start-rating? Thanks for a stellar review!

Was not the issue

Didn’t use will return. Turns out that my 2 yr old, 46thrust NV, has severe rust and corrosion in the lower unit motor, which should have, advertised as a sealed unit as all trolling motor brands. Tech support said probably hit something with motor. BS. Plus I’ve already replaced an 8 sp. switch. Back to using my 12 yr old Minn Kota, that still working just don’t have

Helping you from loosing your motor .. important to prevent from surge

I bought an extra one just in case the first one helped me to protect my kayak motor the NV 55 LB after the fishing net wrapped around the propeller. Very good customer service Fast shipping Thanks

Replacement breaker

I had a 50 amp breaker for my 55 pound thrust motor. Any time I put the motor in high speed, it would tripped the breaker. It was recommended that I used a 60 amp breaker. So far it seems to be working perfectly.
