Co-Pilot not working right?

3 posts in this topic

My Minkota co-pilot is not working all the time. Sometimes it is slow to respond, sometimes you have to push the button several times before responding, or it simply will not respond at all. I replaced the battery in the controller but it did not help the issue. The motor works correctly with the foot control. Any ideas for this? Thanks in advace!

Did you check to see if the connections for the co-pilot are dirty/corroded?

It could be the button contacts on your remote. If I remember right the rubber membrane will come off when you split the unit and you can clean the contacts on the circuit board and rubber membrane. The contacts on the rubber are usually the black knobs on the membrane. Use alcohol or just water on a lint free rag.

I end up doing mine at least once a year when they become less sensative.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
