Lund Pro-V Electronics ?

5 posts in this topic

I've got a 2003 1800 Pro-V tiller. What is the best way to run the transducer cables up to the electronics center? I'm sure their are also "hot" wires to connect the power chords to as well, but having trouble locating them. Any suggestions?

Run the cable up the back of the transom, securing it every few inches with a screw in cable strap, ( make sure to put a dab of silicon in each screw hole before you screw it on ), and then run the cable through the drain hole in the splash pan. From there, run it through the grommet that the gas and electronic connections go through. There should be a bundle of wiring that runs up underneath the gunwhale to the front of the boat. Run it along with these and secure them all together with zip-ties. The simplest way to connect power, is to run it directly to the battery. Route the wiring right up along with the others. I wouldn't suggest tapping into another circut for the power, as this may overload that circut and result in blown fuses. Some boats have additional accessory circuts wired into the fuse panel just for this purpose. If your's has one of them, that will work fine. I'm not sure off the top of my head if your's has this option and we don't have any 1800's in the shop right now otherwise I would check it for you. It should be marked "accessory".

Thanks guys. I thought there might be orange acc. wires as my last boat had them. I'm assuming they are on the port side and can be accessed through the access hole on the side of the boat. It's got me a little confused because the fuse panel is on the opposite side of the boat from the electronics center. Let me know if I'm headed in the right direction.

Your boat should have 2 accessory slots... they are orange wires coming out of the fuse panel with blue butt to butt connectors on the ends... (open ends).

I would hope that they would have run the wires to the port side... but I'm not sure. You'll have to do a little looking around on this one...

Good Luck!

    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.
