I just installed a MinnKota transom mount trolling motor on a Birdsall removable mount on the bow of my skiff. I reversed the head so the prop can face backwards. The reverse and forward are mixed up for some reason. I checked the connections to the battery and they are correct. Has anyone had this problem? :-/

Take the head back off and switch the leads in the shaft and it will run the other way.

That happened to me once, long after I installed it. My quick fix was to reverse the terminals, but thats the lazy way!

Are the leads easy to get to? There is not too much clearance from the wires from the shaft to the head.

the connections should be right there in case it needed to be disassembled for service.
