Also, when hooking to DC, polarity has to be right. If it doesn't work, flip the reversing switch on the power pack you're hooked up to.

CORRECTION TO MY POST ABOUT TROLLER HANDHELD

IF USING THE AC HOOKUP THE CORRECT VOLTAGE SOURCE IS 8-20 VAC.

If you are reffering to the Troller 200H Here's the hookup taken directly from the instructions:
1. Green and White wires to the track.
2. Red and Black wires to a low voltage (8-29VAC)
DO NOT CONNECT DIRECTLY TO A WALL OUTLET!!!!!!!!
This hookup will give you plused power at low settings and will smooth out to pure dc as you increase the throttle setting.

To use all of the features such as momemtum, brake etc. a DC power source must be used (8-20VDC). Connect the white and green wires to the track. Connect the red wire to the positive (+) terminal of the DC power source and the balck wire to the negative (-) terminal of the DC power source. If you use a power pack as a DC source be sure that any "pulse" mode is turned off and that the throttle of the power pack is "full on"
