I just purchased a new minn kota edge trolling motor and I think the motor is turning backwards. It was installed at a dealerhip. Is this possible?? How can I be sure?

how to fix

They wired it wrong in the head of the trolling motor. You will need to take the cap off the head and switch the 2 wires. Same thing happened to me. The angle of your foot pedal will need to be adjusted to because you will now have your foot at a straight up or down angle after the wire switch. Very uncomfortable.
