Lowrance Transducer Connection

4 posts in this topic

Here is the situation. I am going to install a Lowrance LCX unit in my boat. I am mounting the transducer on the transom. There is a small opening in the transom of the boat to run the transducer cable. However, for some unknown reason, Crestliner decided to make this opening very tight. The area of the transducer cable that connects to the unit is very snug when going through the opening in the transom. When I removed the old transducer cable it was like getting a dog in the bathtub. I'm a little concerned about getting the new cable through as the transducer is expensive and I don't want to damage. I'm thinking grease will definately help. However, does anyone know if there is a way to take the plastic nut off the area that connects to the head unit? Thanks.

I just dealt with the same thing last week. I used a bench grinder and carefully sanded off the plastic lips on the connector. It worked great although it was kind of uneasy grinding a brand new piece of equipment.

If you can't remove enough plastic from the nut to get through the opening, just go up and over the top of the transom. Just be sure to use a few cable clamps to secure the cable to the boat.

I did this same thing 2 years ago, It did turn out just fine.
