MinnKota SP Turns On By Itself

FlecFlec Posts: 705 Officer
I was wiping down my trailer yesterday and all the sudden I hear this flapping noise above my head. My MK trolling motor had turned on by itself and the spinning blade cut a slice in my new boat cover before stopping as the blade got wedged in the cover. The remote control for the motor was inside my house. No one had been handling it. The motor was not deployed and was in its cradle. I thought it would not turn on when it is tucked away on the bow. Any ideas? Has this happened to anyone else?
