2017 BF8 kicker motor

Is there a consistently, reliable way to set the motor to a trolling speed using the built-in Throttle Friction Adjuster? The rpm/speed never stays where I set it when I twist the friction adjust. The rpm's consistently change (idle up or idle down) as soon as I take my hand off the tiller. This happens all the time, especially at rpms that are just above an idle.
