Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 months ago.

Did you replace the F/R switch assembly? What happens if you swap the f/r cables on the f/r switch?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
new heavy duty f&r
Like I said it goes forward and backwards fine
Just won't go backwards until it's gone for forwards 5 feet
And revere alarm is constant is I connect to negative
Doesn't make sense everything meters ok

Have you swapped the f/r cables on the switch?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Connected as per wiring diagram in terms of a b c d on switch and a1 a2 s1 s2 on motor
Which ones are you suggesting I switch and why
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 months ago.

S1 and S2 , so we can see if it is still acting up in reverse when wired through forward.

Tried it tonight same problem
Switch s1 & s2 at motor
Tried it again seemed ok in both directions but then after a few tries problem returned just the opposite way round i.e. Always reverses ok but won't go forwards unless it is immediately after reverse motion
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 months ago.

If it is not the F/R switch, and it isn't, it seems to be a controller or motor problem. And both are new! Have you contacted Alltrak and see what they have to say?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 months ago.

I see question is still open, did you find problem?
