I think quite by accident I discovered why both of my wireless for the trolling motors have gone bad on both of my powerdrive v1's. I generally leave them plugged in when I charge the batteries and that's the problem. Seems surges can occur which messes up the brains on the wireless circuits. Doesn't seem to affect the trolling motor itself, but there is that possiblity. So I'm now gonna paint a white stripe on the arrows (since I barley can see them) so I'll know the orientation to plugging them back in. I didn't want to spend another 150 bucks for the wireless control piece but think I'll contact Minn Kota to see if I can just buy the replacement panel. May not save me much but its worth a try.
