I have uploaded a image of the wire system. folllow it carefully. the fuses rating should be no more than than thirty amp. go to your local outboard dealer they sell inline breakers that are designed for trolling motors. i prefer them because you don't have to replace them after a overload. you just reset the breaker.de79e02.jpg

Start to look for the charge state of your battery.
Measure the voltage on the battery connectors when the motor falls out. If lower than 11v your battery is too weak.
Also check all the cables between battery and motor. Check foor loose connection or oxidation.

Minn Kota hand control motors have a small nut/bolt thru the motor shift aligning the handle with the lower unit. If yours does not line up your either missino this bolt or a previous owner altered the motor.
Hope this helps.

Did the unit come with a strap to mount the transducer to a bow mount electric? Most units do... If not there is probably one available for the unit as an aftermarket accessory or accessory from the manufacturer... Regarding the transducer wire, just wrap and rout this up the front of the bow mount motor shaft so when you pull the motor up and secure it, it is not going to get in the way. You could cable tie the cord down near the bottom of the shaft and one up near the top where they wont interfere with the motor bracket when the motor is positioned up on the boat.
