    Did you charge the battery for 24 hours? The only time I had that happen was when i got excited to power it up but the battery came pretty much dead.

    I took the unit out today to drill a few holes for a shakedown run and it seemed to work fine.

    I've sent mine in for repairs twice. Once under warranty and once I paid for it. Same exact thing you're describing. I'm replacing it once it starts that again. It's a flaw in the design I think. Moisture gets in to the unit and freezes or corrodes the contacts inside. I try to keep mine dry and warm to avoid any issues.

    I've had it less than two years

    This is one of the reasons why I didn't buy one. Read too many bad reviews on it. Any chance u could return it and get your money back?

    I tell everyone who will listen. Run away from the Showdown Troller 2.0. Mine was in for repairs two times also. The problem is that the face plate with the buttons is just a sticker. If you touch the buttons with wet fingers, or snow or rain gets on the face it's a death sentence. The moisture will work around the sticker and short out the contacts. After the second factory repair I haven't used it again. It works presently but I don't feel right about selling it to someone.
