Are Remote-Trolls hard to install?cmarquez
No, not usually. Regardless of whether you're mounting directly to the transom or onto a swim platform, all Remote-Trolls mount with just four bolts (included). The only tough installations are ones where you do not have access to put a nut on the other end of the bolt (inside of the swim deck or transom), or if you are mounting to a very curved transom. Those installations take a little ingenuity. However, we’ve done these before, so call us and we’ll assist you. For the majority of boats, however, mounting is just a matter of drilling four holes, putting the bolts through, caulking, and tightening the nuts. One more hole (1 1/8") will be necessary for mounting the female electrical plug. Then, just align pivot pins on the steering system with slots on mounting bracket and insert two bolts through the bracket and into the Remote-Troll. Plug in the motor cord and start fishing.
