Minnkota 795 problem Any suggestions or solutions anyone???

1 post in this topic

Here is my deal I bought this motor last fall and put it on my boat this spring when I got it done for opener and I couldn't get it to run it would just click in the board where the wires hook up under the metal cover on frame of motor mount.

So I called Minnkota and they told me I was SOL it was the relay and they didn't make them anymore for my motor So I got on the horn with my old man and with him if there's a will there's a way to fix it and I ended up by-passing that relay and hooking it up direct, so it still worked ,but only on high and I used it that way for opener and it was working good until I saw smoke rolling from the foot pedal and after that my left turn wouldn't work.

I ended up picking up a 765 from a buddy at school which I couldn't get to work at first until I called him and he informed me this motor was reverse polarity and I tried that and everything works great, But the problem is it is a little small for my boat and a few other things were better on my old one.

Here is my question finally I just thought I had to include this stuff to make my question make sense.

I was wondering if I wired my 795 back up the way it was intended and I hooked it up reverse polarity and I used my foot control that works good and try it that way since it is about the same age as the 765 and the foot control will plug into the 795 will I end up taking out my good foot control or do you think things will be just fine?

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?
    • many of my 2nd graders have more frontal cortex development........
    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
