    Had the same problems and these are just the “beginning symptoms”. They will get worse. It is your plug. The plug that comes with Minnkota is the Marinco plug. Junk. Mine was always hot, always came loose on its own and eventually caught fire. Yes, actual flames and burning plastic.

    I switched to a two prong Trac plug. All problems went away and the plug is not even warm.

    Thanks for this. I actually saw this the day my motor totally died but got jammed up with work and just had a chance to replace the plug. 

    Spot on diagnosis.

  2. You can run on either graph. The only problem is that the Autochart will only show on the unit with the chip. Even when the map is on global settings and the map chip in one unit is available on all graphs, the autochart stays local. Transducers are available on all units. At least that's the way it works on my setup (3 networked Solix units with 3 transducers - thru hull, mega side and trolling motor, Navionics map chip and 2 Autochart chips). 

  3. It was also much worse to the west from what I saw. Fished big bay a couple of weeks ago and it was bad. It wasn’t ever too bad where I live on the north east end and the bite was great on the 4th.

    How would you say the ranger rides compared to the Lund? Is it less bumpy and noisy than the Lund. If you typically fished 3 people on the boat and had to do it all over again would you choose the Lund 1875 or a Ranger deep-v?


    I wish it was more straight forward but the Ranger tracks better trolling and is much more stable bashing big waves. It's also more stable with 3 people moving around. The Lund jumped up on plane at such low speed that it was great to just bounce spot to spot with and it was also fine for 3 people as long as the waves weren't too big. Then it got tossed a bit more.
