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?

    •   Because you have an affinity for such things??..    No, seriously, you need to take a good look at your browser's advanced settings.  Some browsers can be set so they will automatically wipe your cookies and search history every time you shut the browser down.  Not sure which browsers have this capability, but the one I use is Epic.    
    •   If we retrace what happened to get Obamacare passed in the first place, we need to remember the narrative that was used by the Democrats that there were 49 million Americans with no insurance.  Now they are saying 24 million Americans will lose their insurance if the law is struck down.  So I'm taking that to mean they actually got 24 million people to sign up in the exchanges under the law after 7 years.  So about as "successful" as the REAL ID Act...   Between the healthcare industry, big pharma, and the insurance industry, somewhere between $300 and $400 million was spent in lobbying to get the ACA passed.   The Koch brothers are pledging $300 to $400 million in the 2018 election cycle to strike the legislation down, and have also stated they will not support any politician in the future who votes for Ryan-Care.   It's how things work in the real world, like it, or not....
    •   Can anyone explain why I get ads here for dating sites with a picture of a big busted older woman   or Russian and oriental girls looking for marriage when I don't even go on those sites?
    •    In a  free market, ObamaCare would have collapsed two years ago. And all the promises made regarding it are and have been falling apart.   But government does not let boondoggles collapse. ObamaCare will be funded, unfortunately, with more debt and printing to keep it and all it's problems on life support   Think "too big to fail" and QE    
    •   Nunes Backs Down From Assertion Trump Was Monitored   Keep reading your fake news Uncle Bill. Also Nunes canned the next committee hearing on Russia. He is basically a Trump crony at this point, trying his best to obstruct the committees investigation.   There's Trump's transition team. Now go back and watch the Comey hearing. I think you will hear a certain 2 GOP representatives who are only worried about who is leaking intelligence rather than what the intelligence says (or literally the exact same thing Trump says).
    •   They could for example sell the information to your insurance company that would promptly adjust your rates if you showed a tendency toward unhealthy behaviors. It doesn't take much imagination.   There is actually a plan to fight this one. The goal is to crowd source some funding, then purchase the data for congressmen and publish them all to the public.
