Hi all,
I have a Minn Kota 45 thrust. Not too old but gets little use. It was stored in my garage for a year or two and when I took it out to use, it would not work - no power. I pulled the cover and there was rusty water in the cowling (very humid all of last summer). I figured the 5 speed switch went bad and replaced it. There's power going into the switch but nothing happens when I twist the throttle. Is there an internal fuse or reset button somewhere?
Could it be something in the lower unit? Something I'm missing?

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

DH
