Electrical Wiring Question

Recommended Posts

I have a 2009 Lund Outfitter 1750 Single Console. I would like to add two cigarette lighter plug-ins for hand held radio, cell phone, light, etc. There is a fuse block on the console with what looks like extra circuits. Can I hook up the plug-ins to a couple of these? Should there be a common ground that I can hook up the negative?

Thanks for your help.

Should work fine on a fuse block. I'd be worried about overloads on a buss bar, especially with something like a spotlight, but on it's own fused circuit it should work great.

Yep, as long as it has its own fuse you will be fine. Be sure to use the recomended wire guage and fuse.

SimilarIs, I'm pretty sure 10amps is the standard fuse rating for a cigarette lighter. ...you've got me thinking that I need to add a couple to my console.

I added one to my old boat so I could plug in my cell phone. I ended up using a splitter so I could plug in my H2OC too.

On my new boat, I have one of those "Beam" lights with aligator clips that I've used off the trolling motor batteries in front and now I have an underwater camera. I'm going to put one that I can access in front of the console and one in back.

There should be 2 "Acc" spots on your fuse block - look for two orange wires coming out of the back of the fuse block with a empty side on the butt to butt connector - put a fuse in the empty spots and wire your accessory plug in to it and you're ready to go.

There is a ground block under the console - take a look - it's a has a black plastic base with a bunch of male spade ends on it.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
