How old are the batteries running that... Verado ? Verado? Sure about that?

What other details do you have? Battery age? Even deep cycle? How well maintained in the winter are they? Things like that + everything else that was posted

Happy fishing!!

Perhaps a bad battery or wiring may not be hooked up properly. Might be a bad plug also. I would see if you are getting 36v at the plug first.

Eric_CO Resistance at the plug due to corrosion is something that happened to me once. Plug would get warm too.

prov1900 Or one of your batteries is toast or about to be. Another easy/quick check.

I did the same once. Spot lock would give up after a minute or two.
