Hi Nick, my name is***** problem is inside of the remote control (The remote control is the shifter box) The remote controls are not serviceable, they do not sell parts for them separately, and if there is any problem with them they must be replaced. That being said if you can take a picture of your remote control box for me I can look up a part number for a replacement for you.

The remote control is that where the throttle handles are?
Expert:  Jason replied 6 months ago.
Correct. Can you take a picture of that for me.

Thanks but I am not there until Saturday could I send you the picture then as I would very much appreciate that. Are they simple to replace?

How long would the job take ?😀

As long as they come apart the way they are supposed to with no surprises or stripped screws they take about an hour for a mechanic to swap out.
