Trolling Motor Question

2 posts in this topic

Hello. Looking for a little advice on the following:

I have an older Minnkota Auto Pilot - 36#lbs thrust.

When the motor is in the cradle and is horizontal and out of the water I can run it at max speed and it runs fine.

However, when vertical and being used in the water it "hiccups" - the power goes in and out and I cannot bring it past 40% of max speed w/o it working. This weekend it was very fussy and sometimes simply would not work.

The battery is new and fully charged so that is not it. Is it the motor's internal gizmos that are not working?

Connection to the battery? Point where the plug goes in, etc??

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
