Minn Kota question 24 volt

Post by ponyplay » Sat May 27, 2017 1:06 pm

Hi have couple issues with 6 year old ipilot. Steering has full funtion as it is working fine , but prop is failing and struggling to spin, if I crank it up to full noise 10 it just spins slowly. Any one had this issue thinking maybe a bearing gone , I'm replacing battery's this week to as they are old and on the way out. Current ones are putting out 23.30 volts
Living over in Kununurra may be issue sending it in for repair , in and out send them to bla ? I'm thinking may be better bet to replace it having got 6 good years out of it , any thoughts ?

Could just be the battery's mate when we were on the daly we drained ours it was in ten and spinning ever so slowly but it was spinning freely. Does it spin free? Like when it's out of water can you hear anything weird?

Check the cable between the battery and the MK as well. Often a culprit.

I think he is on the money sounds like possible corrosion in one of the cables.
