A step by step installation guide for an easy and quick setup of the eTow.
Before using for the first time, the batteries and remote should be charged fully. Both, the batteries and the remote control should be charged at last once within 3 months after delivery. The blue battery LEDs and the display of of the remote control allow to monitor the the progression fo the charge.
Takuma recommends the use of 35A batteries for optimum performance of the eTow. The battery strap in the hull should be moved to the side when installing the batteries. Once the batteries are placed with the battery holder between them, the strap must be locked and fastened to keep the batteries in place. The pins will only connect if the notches are properly aligned. No great force is needed. To prevent water entry the connectors must be securely fastened.
The 3 antenna rods should be screwed in gently. The two 2.4gHz rods in the back and the 915mHz rod in the front.
The tow rope and carabiner should be placed at the back of the eTow. Takuma recommends a rope diameter of at least 2cm and the rope length can be adjusted as needed, shorter for wavy conditions and longer for free riding sessions.
To turn the battery on, the battery button should be pressed until all 5 LED lights are on. By pressing on the remote power button, the remote will turn on. A finger should be pressing on the power button of the remote until it is paired. The pairing needs to be complete within 1 minute of turning on the eTow or else the process will need to be restarted.
To load the eTow on the trolley, it is recommended to slide it onto the trolley or get assistance from another person to place it directly on top. Once the watercraft is placed on the trolley, it should be fastened with the trolley strap and the eTow is good to go. Thanks to the big wheels of the trolley, it can be easily manoeuvred down through the sandy beach, straight to the water.
Tip: For beach use, the wheels should be deflated to approx. half of the max. PSI.
