trolling motor problems

Question

Scoot

Whenever I have power to my '06 MinnKota PD (with AP) the head constantly turns to the right. I assumed it was the foot pedal, but I replaced that and it's still doing it. Any idea what my problem is?

Scoot,

Since the motors only a year old it is still covered under warranty, you can bring it into scheels hardware and they should be able to get it fixed up, they do warranty work for minn kota. My brother just bought a new powerdrive and it was wired up backwards so forward was reverse, he brought it in and they had it done the next day.

The Hardware store works on them? I wounder when they started doing that. I used to work there and we never did then. Guess I will need to remember that if I have problems.

Yup, Not sure when the hardware store started working on mk's, I found out about it when I went into the big Scheels on 45th looking for a foot pedal a couple months ago and they told me I might have to go to the Scheels Hardware to get one since they do the work on minn kota's now...they probably started when they made the move.

Ya I suppose that might have added that when they moved. Of course I was 6 years ago when I worked there I suppose things could have changed since then grin.gif.

Thanks fellas. I ended up bringing it in to Bob's Trolling Motor repair in West Fargo. He took care of me right away. It was a bad compass.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.

      @Rick G, it's about the questionable link they left. Either something hard is going to popup. Or someone may end up with a virus. Or both!

      I sure would like to see your video Curt, but can't seem to get past the error code myself. Hope it was a good one, and always look forward to seeing them..

      Thanks Rick G that will be this springs project one thin spray on the top and bottom should be just right. Seems they all have this issue you’d think they’d do somthing about it.

      I've got a 9 ah battery ordered in addition to my 5 ah batteries.   I'm thinking I should be in better shape.  But with the ice getting pretty thick I'll be switching to my gas auger soon.

      Thanks for the replies I will be getting one today. Poseidon one thing to check is your blade sharpness Last year I thought my drill was getting weak I put new blades on and away I went.  With this open winter they tend to dull faster just an idea. I'm getting about 15 -18 holes per battery in 20 inches of ice also with same set up.

      Teach them up in the way they should go. And they will never part from it! Great video!   Mom probably loved the day off too!
