Eagle Ultra II

My dad has one on his boat, never been a problem before, but this year it will power up, run awhile then shut down. It will power right back up, then shut down again after a few minutes. Any ideas where to start looking?

Check the condition of the battery.

Clean the contacts on the power plug and on the sounder. Check the connections at the battery and or fuse panel. Clean the in-line fuse holder.

Zamboni,

Had the same thing happen to my old ultra classic, Lowrance wanted 150.00 to fix it. I bought a new unit instead.

It is the unit itself, no problems with the boat or wiring would be my guess. Buddy has the same unit as well, and has the same issue he just puts up with the powering off.

I wanted toupgrade to color when mine started to do that and I don't think I would go back to B&W again.

Mine did the same thing only it was hard to keep it powered on. It turned out to be the in-line fuse connections were going bad. I replace the whole red in-line fuse thing and no more problems.

Thanks guys, we are going to replace the in-line fuse wire and see if that helps, if not, must be the unit itself.

Zamboni, I had the same problem with mine. I called Lowrance and they sent me a voucher for $50-$200(depending on model) off of a new unit, no questions asked. I got the unit with a used boat that I bought. You might want to give them a call.

    •   Hopefully the trend towards "the other white meat" will bring down the cost of beef brisket
    •   No, weekends was when the wife could get you outside to do some yard work!
    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
