wiring?

6 posts in this topic

I just got around to rewiring my hb flasher and now when i use my trolling motor the flasher will not show the bottom my transducer is on the transom and i have a bow mount. If i am running around with the gas motor it works just fine slow or fast. I would rather not have to have two batteries in the boat since i don't have room. My other boats that i have owned have only had one battery and everything ran fine at the same time. I have it wired through a fuse pannel with a 1 amp fuse that was in the manual. There is nothing in the troubleshooting that has anything to do with it. Any suggestions on what to try?

So I'm clear, you have the trolling motor and the depth finder on the same battery, correct?

If so, that's likely the problem... you're getting interference from the trolling motor. Do you have a vexilar, or other 12V battery? Try (to isolate the problem) wiring your depth finder directly to that, and see if it works better.

Yes you are correct marine_man. I've got two extra batteries for my ice fishing flasher i'll try using one of them this afternoon when i go out and see if it works. I've always used one battery in every boat the only thing that is different is that they where transom mount.

And that's a possibility as well for why it won't read, but let's start with the more straight forward stuff first.

Well i made it out for 4 hours and it worked fine hooked up to the other battery. So is there anyway to make just one battery work or do i have to live with a extra battery in my way.

Not that I'm aware of... Trolling Motor interference with a depth finder is something that happens... and as far as I know there's no solution short of a separate battery.

    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
