BE SURE TO FIRMLY HOLD THE MOTOR SHAFT

WHENEVER MAKING ADJUSTMENTS TO THE QUICK

RELEASE DEPTH COLLAR, OR TO THE STEERING

TENSION ADJUSTMENT KNOB. THE MOTOR CAN

SLIDE DOWN QUICKLY AND CAUSE INJURY.

BATTERY INFORMATION:

The motor will operate with any deep cycle marine 12 volt battery/batteries. For best results use a deep cycle, marine battery with at least a 115 ampere hour rating. As a general on the water estimate, your 12 volt motor will draw one ampere per hour and your 24 volt motor will draw .75 ampere per hour for each pound of thrust produced when the motor is running on high. The actual ampere draw is subject to your particular environmental conditions and operation requirements. Maintain battery at full charge. Proper care will ensure having battery power when you need it, and will significantly improve the battery life. Failure to recharge lead-acid batteries (within 12-24 hours) is the leading cause of premature battery failure. Use a variable rate charger to avoid overcharging.

If you are using a crank battery to start a gasoline outboard, we recommend that you use a separate deep cycle marine battery/ batteries for your Minn Kota trolling motor.

Advice regarding batteries:

Never connect the (+) and the (–) terminals of the battery together. Take care that no metal object can fall onto the battery and short the terminals. This would immediately lead to a short and utmost fire danger.

Recommendation: Use battery boxes and covered battery terminal clamps like Minn Kota accessory #MK-BC-1.

These motors are equipped with a “push to test” battery gauge. The LED provides an accurate display of the remaining charge in the battery. It is only accurate when the motor is off. The gauge reads as:

• Four lights indicate full charge.

• Three lights indicate good charge.

• Two lights indicate low charge.

• One light indicates recharge.

Boat Rigging and Motor Installation:

An over-current protection device (circuit breaker or fuse) must be used with this motor. Coast Guard requirements dictate that each ungrounded current-carrying conductor must be protected by a manually reset, trip-free circuit breaker or fuse.

The type (voltage and current rating) of the fuse or circuit breaker must be sized accordingly to the trolling motor used. The following breaker sizes are recommended guidelines:

Maximum thrust Voltage / Recommended circuit breaker rating

30# to 45# 12V 50A @ 12VDC

50# to 55# 12V 60A @ 12VDC

65# to 70# 24V 50A @ 24VDC

80# 24V 60A @ 24VDC

101# 36V 50A @ 36VDC

E-Drive 48V 40A @ 48VDC

The appropriate wire size needed to connect your trolling motor to the trolling motor batteries varies depending on the length of cable needed and voltage of the motor. For additional information, please consult appropriate ABYC (American Boat and

MAXIMIZER™: (On Select Models)

The built-In Maximizer’s electronics create pulse width modulation to provide longer running time and extended battery life.

With the Maximizer speed control, you may, in some applications, experience interference in your depth finder display.

We recommend that you use a separate deep cycle marine battery for your trolling motor and that you power the depth finder from the starting / cranking battery. If problems still persist, call our service department at 1-800-227-6433.

MAINTENANCE OF THE PRODUCT:

1. After use, these units should be rinsed with fresh water, then wiped down with a cloth dampened with an aqueous based silicone spray such as Armor All®.

2. The propeller must be cleaned of weeds and fishing line.

The line can get behind the prop, wear away the seals and allow water to enter the motor. Check this after every 20 hours of operation.

3. Before each use, check to see that the prop nut is secure.

4. To prevent accidental damage during trailering or storage, disconnect the battery whenever the motor is off of the water. For prolonged storage, lightly coat all metal parts with an aqueous based silicone spray.

5. For maximum performance, restore battery to full charge before each use.

6. Keep battery terminals clean with fine sandpaper or emery cloth.

7. The weedless wedge propeller is designed to provide absolute weed free operation with very high efficiency.

To maintain this top performance, the leading edge of the blades must be kept smooth. If they are rough or nicked from use, restore to smooth by sanding with fine sandpaper.

TROUBLESHOOTING:

1. Motor fails to run or lacks power:

• Check motor for obstructions. The motor may have gone into current limit. To reset: return to off position, remove obstruction and resume operation.

• Failure to put the motor in the off position before stowing the handle will result in joint failure.

• Check battery connections for proper polarity.

• Make sure terminals are clean and corrosion free. Use fine sandpaper or emery cloth to clean terminals.

• Check battery water level. Add water if needed.

2. Motor looses power after a short running time:

• Check battery charge, if low, restore to full charge.

3. Motor is hard to steer:

• Loosen the steering tension knob on the top of bracket.

• Lubricate the composite shaft.

4. Bracket shifts or “walks” on transom:

• With some boats, the transom bracket may loosen or shift during heavy use.

5. You experience prop vibration during normal operation:

• Remove and rotate the prop 180°. See removal instructions in prop section.

NOTE: For all other malfunctions, see enclosed authorized service center listing for nearest service center.
