Minn Kota running backwards

Post by clutter » Mon Apr 01, 2013 5:58 pm

Just wondered if anyone has had this experience. I had my motor (iPilot) in for a fix and the board was replaced but on my first trip with it she seems to be running backwards. Will ring BLA tomorrow but wondered if anyone else has had this happen.

Cheers, Mick

Crossed wires on the output side. Have done it many times when putting my motorguide back together.
Proud to be assocated with EcoGear. The benchmark for all soft plastics. ~<><

Cheers, I thought it would be something like that. I took it back to BLA anyway as they had just fixed it and I didn't want the possibility of them saying I stuffed around with it if there are further problems while still under warranty.

Hi M,
A disappointing outing in the boat and a couple of hours of your time wasted. But at least THEY didn't have to spend an extra 3 mins. checking their repair. Warranty job or not.
