trolling motor troubles

11 posts in this topic

I have a MnKotta that is 80lb and only two years old.

Last night is was acting strange -- even though the two main lights were off on the foot control it still turned on when it was out into the water.

at the end of the night it did not respond to the foot control at all and decided to keep turning in one direction until it wrapped up the cord.

I am on my second compass already -- is that what is wrong?

my battery light said 3 of 4.

Help?

The spinning sounds like a compass but the turning on and off sounds like a short some place. Check all your wiring.

My father had the same thing happen to his.Call the repair shop at scheels in fargo and explain to them. My fathers needed a new cord,the black one that looks like a slinky.I think it was about $100. Easy fix though. Good luck on the water.

Yeah -- tried to call scheels -- they were not really helpful -- they just said, "bring it in"

Marc, give D&D repair a call in DL, he may get you going quicker.

I think you're going to need to take it in... Motor Clinic does a good job, but I'd follow minneman's suggestion since you're no where near the cities.

What was actually wrong with your troller? Cord, compass or what?

    • 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!
