To ground or not to ground?

3 posts in this topic

I posted awhile ago about a problem with a bow mount (24 volt) Minnkota when I hook up the dpeth finder to the universal sonar. My brother who is a bit smart than me figures that because we have the dpeth finder wired directly to the ignition battery (12 volts) but the transducer for it is hooked up to the T/M wich is 24 volts we should ground the ignition battery to the negative side of the 24 volt set up. Does that make sense? Also, not sure if my description makes sense, if not I can further clarify.

thanks - erik

FYI - it is US1 not US2. I know US2 do not need to be grounded between starting and TM batts. Thanks for any info, we are trying to ge the front sonar working without making the motor go goofy...

It would be worth a shot I guess to connect the two and see what happens... you could use a one half of the jumper cable to connect the two - that, or connect the depth finder wires to the trolling motor battery via jumper cables from where they would connect to the starting battery to the trolling motor battery temporarily.

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )

    • In this depth range I still use the DT10. Unless the weeds are growing up quite a bit. If they are then I will use the DT6.
