SOURCE: minnkota maxxum 70 has half the thrust is had before

Sounds like a bad connection somewhere. I would take it to a authorized dealer for repair if it's still under warranty. Can get a bit tricky to repair yourself unless you're comfortable with soldering.

Here's a schematic for your motor:
Max 70
My guess is you are correct in it being the brushes.
More times than not the motor will have leaked from in behind the prop are. What happens is a peice of monofilament line floating around in the water gets caught behind the prop and cuts the seals up, allowing water intrusion.
To remedy you'll need to clean up the entire bottom motor and replace the brushes, bearing and seal kit too. Clean up the commutator (copper area, now probably black in color, where the brushes ride on) with fine emory paper and you should be good to go!
Best of luck

Charger seems to have both red and green lites flashing at the same time no sequence and both batteries connected read 4.0 VDC, are these chargers repariable or throw aways

Your manual is here. The section on charging states, that green blinking means your battery is fully charged but blinking red means that your charger is faulty. I would say repairable.

1. Plug the female connector of the AC power cord (supplied) to the AC receptacle on the charger and plug in the male connector on the AC power cord into the wall outlet.

2. The On/Off LED indicator is blinking RED, this is abnormal. Unplug AC power cord from the on-board battery charger and wall outlet. Charger may need to be replaced. Contact an Invacare dealer or qualified technician.

3. When the On/Off LED indicator light is Off, charger is Off.

4. When the Charge LED indicator light is YELLOW, the batteries are charging.

5. When the Charge LED indicator light is solid GREEN, the batteries are fully charged (as their condition will allow).

6. When charging is complete, unplug the male connector of the AC power cord from the wall outlet and then unplug the female connector of the AC power cord from the AC receptacle on the charger.

How come the burners on my general electric stove

Whenever I replace a block, it doesn't hurt to file or sand the male contacts on the surface burner. Be safe.

Has a 5 pole socket for trailer wiring

Your terms are inconsistent.

Female 5 pole receptacle on the bike is what you need? You have a 4 pole male plug on the trailer?

You are looking for some sort of adaptor? Please show a picture of both ends, it would help.

What should I do to make f-pin coax coupler I bought (to link two coax cables to extend the range of my cable box) receive and display cable programs?

Female to female couplers will only connect to a male plug either side. If the two plugs are female you won't be able to do it, till you either change to two males or get a male to male coupler!

I have a coleman powermate 6250 generator with a 4prong 220v female plug on the power panel. My travel trailer has a 3 prong male plug. How can I convert my generator or is there an adapter that I can...

You do not want to convert anything to a 220 v connection !!!! Your RV is 12 volt DC and 120 volt AC.
Use a 30amp female to 15 amp male adapter to plug in to regular household receptacle on generator. Available at hardware store and RV stores.
