I think xshark is a wiring guru, seems to always be doing something with that kind of stuff. Emerald Coast Marine is great all around. I hear lots of good things about Davlor Marine. Ive only got experience with Emerald Coast/Kenny Mann, great guy great work

Check your plug then your inline fuses(if you have any) that is a start...it might be something as simple as a bad connection....post up what is wrong with it...bewteen all the great boat mechanics and people on here it might save you a trip for something very simple

It does sound like bad connectors.. Mine did the same thing, I have a mini kota also... It would work for a few mins then stop.. Then it might work again it might not.. I started looking into over the weekend and my connections where bad/rusted.. So I cut them back and put some good grease on it, not I just gotta wire them to the plug..

I second the Maintenance Shoppe top notch crew and more than reasonable pricing, and you'll never have to wonder if the work was done right. The only person that has ever given me a i fix it or it's free guarantee . Not to mention it's a secure facility pitbull's and spot lights . The # is 850-221-6789 ask for Gavin
