It has been brought up before that Thomas Jenkins from Sportsman Toystore moved to Hwy 70 East Pawn shop and is the new authorized Minn Kota repair shop in the area. I wanted to take a quick moment and commend them for their work and highly recommend any of you that have issues with your Minn Kota to take it to Thomas. I dropped my motor off yesterday because the steering collar was busted and the locking mechanism was acting up and asked Thomas how long it would take him. I have plans to fish and need my motor back ASAP. He told me he should be able to have it by Friday and I was happy with that. Fast forward to today at around 2 pm and Thomas is calling me to let me know that my motor was ready for pickup. Just 24 hours after I dropped it off, he had me ready to go. The best part of it all was that all work was done hassle free under warranty and it didn't cost me a dime. The steering mechanism alone would have been a $250 part and that's not counting labor. Hwy 70 East Pawn is making it their goal to carry an inventory of parts, and they have a fine service man in Thomas. If you have trouble with your trolling motor, don't hesitate to bring it to them.
