minn kota powerdrive transducer mounting question

5 posts in this topic

I got a new Powerdrive on the front of my new rig and I don't like how the transducer is mounted on it for the fishfinder up front. You guys who have this motor might now exactly what Im talking about. The wire that runs up the shaft from the transducer is sort of free hanging and cant be strapped. Has anyone come up with a better system for this?

I have been in this boat in the past.. Find out how far your unit turns each way, and zip tie the cable to it.... the key is to leave enough slack for full movement.

Thats what I was thinking would be the only answer. I know that some to the powerdrives have built in transducers and this one is not one of them. I might try to call the dealer and see if he will swap me for one that has this feature. I will probably have to kick in some change but it would probably be with it. The unit hasnt been used yet so they might go for it, or not. You would think after spending 20 grand they would.

I called the dealer this morning and they said that they would swap me for $150. Seems to be a pretty good deal knowing I wont have any wires to deal with and will be able to spin the unit 360.

Universal Sonars are handy. Especially on those motors.
