    I needed to pull the cowl off my winch and some of the wires came off the spade connectors. My problem turned out to be a faulty ground. Now I'm not sure of the connections and don't want to guess and take a chance on shorting out some of the componets. Anybody got a wiring diagram? I would imagine that all the models are the same.

    That would be something I would call MinnKota with in the morning. I would not want to take it for granted all models are the same or that I guessed. You could very easily go found problem (bad ground) to more problems to fix.

    Thanks

    I have a Deckhand 40 anchor winch and I just checked my owners manual,and there is a schematic in it,but it is not a very good one. I have had the cover off of mine on numerous occasions when I was mounting it on my boat,and if I remember right there only a couple of wires that you have to disconnect to get the cover off. If I can be of further help to you send me a PM and I'll help you in any way that I can.
