Default Minnkota thrust not what it should be

I have a Minnkota Verado 112 that is only producing half the thrust or less of what it should.
I have to turn it to 8 to get the power of 4.
Anyone else have this issue, if so what is the fix?
thanks

Have you verified that you have 36+ volts at the plug?

Above is the simple place to start. I've thrown wires together a bit too fast on more than one occasion, and when I check voltage at plug only have 12 or 24 v. Motor doesn't like that too much.

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

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

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