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!

    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.

    •   They're legal until they fall into the wrong hands.  But I haven't heard of many cases where doctors or patients have ended up in prison for distributing narcotics.  So far, the suggested remedy for the epidemic seems to be for the states to set up online information sites so the public can be "educated" about the dangers of using addictive drugs.     So, apparently, armored vehicles, swat teams, and prison sentences are the answer for illegal drugs, and education is the key for legal drugs,
