I have been getting zero life out of my trolling motor batteries, even though I think they are in good shape. I am running a 12 year old Minn Kota 12V. Could it be the motor is toast and sucking bateries?
thanks!

Pull the prop off and make sure there is no fishing line wraped around it. I had problems with mine and found out there was a big wad of line in there. If it's a foot controlled motor clean the connections on the foot pedal. If nothing works it's a good reason to get a new one:D

take it to an alternator / starter motor shop. they can test it in seconds and tell you if anything is amiss. my bet is if the motor runs, thers nothing wrong ith it.
