Default Minn Kota Riptide Ulterra - Will not auto-stow

I have had a MK Riptide Ulterra since Nov 2015 and it has worked flawlessly until this morning. Deployed it as usual, but when we tried to stow it with remote, it would trim up partially then spin clockwise and wrap the cord, until we cut the power to the unit from the perko switch or hit the stow/deploy button on the remote. We tried the reset procedure described in the manual and it did the same thing, until we cut the power. We tried using the power button at the base to initiate the stow procedure and it would do the same thing but we could abort by pushing the stow button and not have to cut the power. We even tried spinning it counter -clockwise and moving the cord over the head to give a chance for more clockwise revolutions, but no success. The trolling motor would otherwise work well, we just could not get it to stow. The last option was to pull the side plate, which we did not do as that is a guaranteed trip to the factory or authorized service center. I have a quick release mount so we were able to pull the TM off when it was almost at the bow stop on the trailer. Unfortunately, this is a holiday weekend and MK will be closed until Wednesday. Anybody else having this problem and have a solution. I could not find this problem anywhere on-line.

Thanks in advance.

What was the outcome of your TM problem? I just experienced the same thing this week.
