Convert broken Pinpoint motor to manual operation?

1 post in this topic

Last year my Pinpoint trolling motor got water in the brain and stopped working.

However, I have every reason to believe the electric motor itself is still functional. I'd like to try converting this to a standard motor and rigging up some kind of transom mount for it.

The problem is there are LOTS of wires going down to the motor. Many of them are for the five sonar transducers, but there are still many more wires besides those.

I can get inexpensive PWM controllers to vary the speed of the motor, but gotta find out what wires are for the motor and how they are connected.

I believe it's a 3700-series Pinpoint.

Anyone know how that motor is wired?

Maybe a schematic floating around??

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
