trolling motor problems

6 posts in this topic

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.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
