Trolling motor will not hold charge

I recently had a minn kota trolling motor installed on my boat and it will not hold a charge. I left it plugged in for two days.. they installed two batteries to charge it with any suggestions?

    I dont think these motors actually have batteries themselves, and hence they don't hold any charge at all... it is the batteries it is connected to that supply the power to the motor, and the batteries themselves are what needs to be charged up to provide the power to the outboard.What batteries have you got installed?

SOURCE: Minn Kota power drive trolling motor will not

It is the circuit board in the foot pedal. You will have to replace the whole foot pedal. This is a very poor design. The thin plastic which protects the contacts gets a little hole which allows water to enter and consequently the contacts corrode. Has happened to me two times in past four years. It might be OK for operation in a dirt-free water-free environment; but not under actual fishing conditions.

    Minn Kota tolling motor


    Reverse the polarity on the trolling motor by taking the trolling motor apart and turning ithe motor housingt 180 degrees and bolt it back up. The polarity will be straight then. I did the same thing when I pulled the armature back in.
