I have had the 12V 55# thrust bow mount VariMax for just over a year now. It has been to the repair shop(BPS Destin Fl) 7,yes seven times in that year. The same problems occur, it goes to reverse only,or switches between forward and reverse,and/or it shuts off at or near full throttle. I have changed the battery's and wiring 2 times at the request of the shop,at my expense. I have also been told that it is to small for a 14' jon boat,and that I needed a 24V motor. I will say this,WHEN it works it is a very powerful trolling motor. 6 MPH according to my GPS on a 14' Lowe VeeJon boat. I would not recommend this trolling motor to anyone.
