Car stereo install in fish house

5 posts in this topic

What do you do with the ACC wire for a pioneer cd player out of a car when you hook it up to the fish house battery? I dont know if the unit works or not, but last night I hooked the 12v constant to the positive of my truck battery then tried to ground it on the body of the truck. It sparked when I grounded it, but the unit wont turn on. I was wondering maybee the ACC wire that normally would go to the ignition has something to do with it? Thanks.

The ACC wire is the one you need for power to the unit. This is the one that supplies the radio with power when you turn the key to the "ACC" or "ON" position in your ignition. The "constant" wire only supplies power to retain the clock and preset memories. Hook both up to the positive terminal and the ground to the negative terminal. You can then shut the radio off with with the ON/OFF function of the radio or put a swith on the "ACC" wire.

connect the yellow and red wires together. (acc and power?) Connect to positive terminal on battery. Take the ground wire (black) and connect to negative on battery. (Acc is for accessory position for key in car. That will send the other positive signal to the radio to power on.) Walla it should turn on. Just to be safe run a 15amp fuse on red cable if there isn't one already.

As long as the frame of the fish house is grounded to the battery than its fine to use it as a ground. If you use the radio presets/clock than I would consider wiring the switch on the accessory wire and leaving the other power wire hot to retain the memory. Don't forget to fuse the power wires close to the battery!! The amount of draw during storage will be minimal and more than likely the batteries will be charging while its sitting anyways?

I installed the one in the boat exactly like the above except I ran wire to the battery ground! Ran it off the trolling battery and never had an issue with a low battery when it was off.

    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
    •   Just like you being a social media queen, LOL

    • Every one said, with out Double here we may as well leave.   So, Welcome back may be with you here they will come back now! 
    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud.
