Customer Question

I have twin Neptune electric motors on my pontoon. The only number I can make out on them is EP96. The control cable with attached control box was stolen with my truck. Is it possible to find a new cable? The connection has 6 pins.***@******.***

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
Due to the age of these units it is very hard if not next to impossible to locate these type of replacement parts, the cable you may be able to make without the connectors using different ones however the control would be the biggest problem. I tried locating one used but none are currently available. Next options are try contacting to convert it and or replace the entire setup (yes I realize this is not ideal) or wait for one to come up on the used market.
I believe there should be 1 control both for each motor.
And you are correct on the model, they are minnkota neptune "EP96" is the model number. 96lb thrust units.
Even if referring to the actual hand operated control box they are very hard to locate.
Thank you!
