ok guys and gals im having a problem with my minn kota power drive 40lb thrust trolling motor. it has the foot controller with 25 ft cord on it and adjustable speeds from 0 to 10. here is a pic of my pedal.
Now here is my problem. After leaving my boat sitting for winter i got it out uncovered it and was testing everything and checking things. with my trolling battery charged 100% when i turn on my foot pedal and start up the scale to adjust speed the prop does not move till it gets to around 6-7 then it starts moving very slow. maxed out at 10 it moves pretty good but i have no movement at all in prop from 0 to 7 where it use to spin on setting 1 and gradually got faster as i went up. i dont want to buy a $80 pedal to find out that my motor is messed up and iv tried to ask around to borrow or test another foot pedal but cant find one. what do you guys think? i tried cleaning the pedal good as it has dirt on the board but after good cleaning still has no speed from 0 to 7.
Thanks for any help.
