50 Amp. Braker

Recommended Posts

If I am not mistaken 50 amp is pretty standard for MK. There newer motors also have a built in overload which resets by disconnecting and reconnecting power.

I just replaced my Motorguide with a Minn Kota Fortrex 80#. At the dealer, they put in a 50A circuit breaker. However, I notice when I set the variable speed to 90 or so, everything's fine. At the maximum setting of 100, the circuit trips. This has happened several times. In the user manual, they recommend a 60A @ 24V for a 80#, but a 50A at 36V for a 101#. I guess the test for you is to see if it trips. I'm going to have my 50A replaced with a 60A.
