So i built a sexy stick, and bought a bigfoot switch, our first tournament and it gave out , not many hours on it ,I would guess about 20 to 30 at the most . I could feel it getting hot and finally it gave up. we drifted the next two hours of the tournament on saturday, Got home and pulled it apart. for those of you who have dissected one you'll know what i mean , the little bell that makes contact with the two connections under the rubber button was for lack of a better word arced. It actually looked like a carbon build up on it, So i cleaned it off with a wire brush and woohoo it worked again until about two hours in on today's shoot ---- It gave up again.When we got home i opened it up again and found the little bell would no longer make contact with the two connections.Why would this thing wear out so quickly? I wired it on the negative side of the troller so there should not be that much amperage running through it . Any suggestions on a better product to do the same job? Im thinking a 50 Amp battery disconnect switch or sompthing along those lines.Ideas??? thanks , Jerry .
