Default Interferance on fish finder with new trolling motor motor?

I have a 12 foot Basstender with the hummingbird 535 fish finder on it. Last year I was running a minn kota 50 pound trust hand troll motor on the bow, which I switched around the casing and had no prob.

This year I went to a minn kota 40 pound power drive foot controlled unit.

The problem is when I hit the juice, whether using the touch & go or the constant on, I get interferance on the fish finder. Any suggestions

Thanks coreyfish

Try running the power for the finder away from the power from the motor.Up the otherside of the boat.Check the grounds too?

Well My set up only has one battery and everything coming together. I have a trojan battery with multi terminals so I can try that , but with a 12 foot boat I don't want to add a battery. coreyfish
