MinnKota Corded Auto-Pilot

4 posts in this topic

Just a tip for other owners of MinnKota's new corded auto-pilot control. I put my motor down and all the controls would work except the motor would not come on. I took the control apart and found a wire that was smashed behind the switch that controls the rotation. At the time, I spliced the wire to make it work. After several e-mails to MinnKota they directed me to an ASC and they replaced the unit. However, before I left there I had them take it apart (the control) to check to see if the wires were smashed behind the switch and they were!! Since the unit had not been used, we were able to re-route the wires before they got broken. Granted this is only two units with the same problem but maybe others could check theirs before they have a problem.

Is that for the auto, or did you mean copilot?
If you meant copilot, I was think of getting one of them myself, but cant decide since the cordless remote style is only $50 more.

I'm talking about the corded co-pilot. It basically replaces the foot control with a unit you operate by hand. (I always did operate my foot control using my hands anyway. I had the foot control mounted on top of my console.) It is a great innovation over the foot control because you just operate some rocker switches by hand and the speed control is a thumbwheel rheostat. The only thing MinnKota missed doing right is putting an "on-off" switch for the autopilot on the control box. That would have been very convenient.

Thanks for the heads up, I think I will get the cordless copilot.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
