    Guys:

    I have a C2 55# TM which suddenly stopped working this week. Dedicated battery was fine, connections clean and tight, plug in looks good too.

    Any good Minn Kota repair places north of Grand Rapids?

    Maybe this will help. I looked around some and there appears to be a few north of Grand Rapids.

    Natty, had the same problem a few years back on a 50lb Minn-Kota tiller.
    when I took it in the service tech had discovered some mono had wrap around the spline and destroyed the seals motor was a rusted piece of junk. repair would have been more than a new unit.
    At least 3 times a month i remove the prop and check for debris of any sort.
    As far as a service tech D&R Sports in Kalamazoo is my go to spot.
    Bets luck

    Big Thunderstorms this morning so Ryan did not have a guide trip. So I took the Minn Kota over to his shop and gave him a half hour to check things out. He diagnosed the problem and prescribed the fix readily.

    He gets "Five Stars" for very savvy Minn Kota service. Very nice guy to chat fishing with as well.

    I'm glad you got it figured out, Maple Bay would of been a pain to get to and probably not too fast.
