Minn Kota Motor Schematics

Minn Kota Trolling Motors use a serial number code to determine the year of manufacture. These serial numbers may start with ‘MK’ (Minn Kota) or ‘WW’ (Weedless Wedge) or ‘GN’ (Genesis) or ‘CP’ (Co-Pilot) or ‘DH’ (Deckhand) or ‘TT’ (Trim Tabs) or ‘FR’ (Factory Reconditioned), followed by the date code.
