MinnKota Fortrex lift assist cylinder
« on: April 20, 2015, 07:48:28 AM »

Is the lift assist cylinder for the Fortrex rechargeable, or does it just have to be replaced?  Mine is 4 years old, and does not work right anymore. It's $30 for a new cylinder. I'm just wondering if it can be recharged.

I noticed that mine went this year too.  Mine is a 2012. Guess they don't last to long. Let me know if they are easy to install.

Doh!!!  I have whole lift mechanism in the garage.  You could have had it for the cost of taking the thing apart.  I could have brought it out there... we could have gone fishing.  OH well, next time.
