    How to read the serial number on your MinnKota

    Starting in January of 2009, MinnKota serial numbers started in the below format:

    A / NNN / SS / NNNNNN

    This code is as follows
    A = the Alpha equilivant of the year ie: 2009 = J, 2010 = K, ..... 2016 = Q, 2017 = R, 2018 will be S
    NNN = the Julian date the unit was made on. A Julian calender, January 1 is 001 and December 31 (non leap year) is 365
    You can find Julian calenders on the web -- Google it
    SS = Unit type, MK is trolling motors, AI is battery chargers
    NNNNN = the actual serial number of the unit

    That information isn't serial number related, but is unit/model related. Best is to write down the information on the top of the trolling motor and either google it or bring the information into a post below on the regular forum.
