Question about Minn Kota Edge 40 Freshwater Bow Mount Trolling Motor

2 Answers

Minn Kota Edge 12 volt 40lb. thrust. Problem with steering straight ahead. If steering to the left or right, if correcting to go straight ahead, the motor goes beyond center as if there is slack in the cable. The motor is a year old and used very little. It was on the boat I bought last fall and there is no paper work for it.

How does the minn kota 65 all terrain run on 24


You should only run the motor with a 24v battery or two 12v batters 'jumped' out. To jump the two batteries, connect the positive on one batter to the negative on the other battery and hook the trolling motor battery cables up to positive and negative terminals that are NOT jumped out as you would normally. Don't run this with 12v as you will have serious problems if you do. They do not make a 65lb thrust in 12v - too much pound thrust to run off of 12v.
