MinnKota Ulterra Riptide Auto Deploy

Recommended Posts

Question, has anyone else bought a MinnKota Ulterra Riptide? How has it performed? I bought one over the summer. Love it. But only when it works. After about a dozen uses the auto-deploy stopped working. I called MinnKota and they said something in the deployment mechanism must have bounced loose. They told me to take it to a service center, which is 50 miles away. I am pretty underwhelmed by MinnKota CS. I've talked to a lot of guides in my area and they've all had problems. Anyone else out there having issues? Any quick fix tips so I don't need to keep schlepping 50 miles when/if it goes out again?

I have a total of 2 years on the first generation and second generation Ulterra! So far, not even a hiccup.  I bought both from Mike at Master Repair in Stuart.
