Maybe it is my walmart battery. I bought the battery last November and only used it a few times. It was not recharged all winter. Perhaps, my battery is drained.

The last time I used my maxxum I got about 2 hours of constant trolling at 50% of full power thrust. Did you do anything to rig the battery differently. I know on the the Minn Kota instruction booklet says to use a "fused ground wire" if you using only one a battery (which I am) and other electronics. I am using a Eagle Cuda 168 fish finder. I cannot imagine the fish finder would drain the battery.

You are right about the Cuda 168.  The draw on your battery is next to nothing.  They don't use very much power.
