bow mount sonar wiring

5 posts in this topic

I'm installing a graph on the bow with the transducer on the trolling motor. I would like to run the power cord, the one with the six little female sockets, up from below the bow plate. But that would leave the socket exposed to the elements. I'm afraid of corrosion in the connection. Does anyone have any ideas on how to protect it from corroding? after all, most of the time it won't be hooked up to the weather tite socket of the unit.

LOL...you could use the old Army trick...a condom and a rubber band!!..lol...(they used to place this over their rifle barrels to keep water out in case you diddnt know what I was talking about).
But seriously...a little squirt of WD40 or something similar into the connector will keep the corrosion out...unless you want to try the Trojans!! grin.gif

GullGuide Thanks for giving us "The Talk"
My daddy never covered this with me. Should I buy the lubricated Trogans or the unlubed Trogan's and WD40? smile.gif

I always thought soldiers used condoms to keep the spare socks dry when fording rivers. Thanks for the fatherly advice. I didn't really think this thread would become such a hot tpoic.

I can't remember what the heck the stuff is called....its like "electrolube" or something. Its the stuff you use on wiring and gives it good connection. I got it out in the garage. Somebody else knows what I'm talking about. Kinda funny, I use that condom trick at work on the bobcat auxilary hydrolic hook ups at work to keep the dirt out. I didn't know somebody else dreampt it up before me.

    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?    
    • Gotta let youse guys carry on wid something!!! 
    • so why did you say it then!!!!
    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
