MinnKota Corded Auto-Pilot


pengy

Question

Just a tip for other owners of MinnKota's new corded auto-pilot control. I put my motor down and all the controls would work except the motor would not come on. I took the control apart and found a wire that was smashed behind the switch that controls the rotation. At the time, I spliced the wire to make it work. After several e-mails to MinnKota they directed me to an ASC and they replaced the unit. However, before I left there I had them take it apart (the control) to check to see if the wires were smashed behind the switch and they were!! Since the unit had not been used, we were able to re-route the wires before they got broken. Granted this is only two units with the same problem but maybe others could check theirs before they have a problem.

Is that for the auto, or did you mean copilot?
If you meant copilot, I was think of getting one of them myself, but cant decide since the cordless remote style is only $50 more.

I'm talking about the corded co-pilot. It basically replaces the foot control with a unit you operate by hand. (I always did operate my foot control using my hands anyway. I had the foot control mounted on top of my console.) It is a great innovation over the foot control because you just operate some rocker switches by hand and the speed control is a thumbwheel rheostat. The only thing MinnKota missed doing right is putting an "on-off" switch for the autopilot on the control box. That would have been very convenient.

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
