My lcx 18 did the same thing this summer. It ended up being a bad electrical connection!

so i messed around with the units last night. the x-15 works in both boats at all three hookup points. the x-19 resets at all three hookup points. checked the connectors on the back of the unit and they seem fine.

any thoughts?

Did you try the Lorance Web sight for ideas?

I had the same thing with the Eagle Ultra Classic that came on a used boat I bought this summer. I e-mailed Lowrance and without doing any diagnostics or hardly any hoop-jumping, they just sent me a Rebate letter that gives me between $75-$400 off of a new unit. They said it was because my unit was too old, they didn't support it anymore.

It hasn't happened for a few weeks now, so I think the previous poster was probably on to something. Do you have a voltmeter? You could hook one up for a few minutes and see if the voltage drops when you put a load on the system. I'm not a mechanic or anything, I've just been trying to figure out the same thing recently.

mtreno I had a x-15 do that before (the x-15 you have now replaced it) Lowarance sent me out a new one and never really told me why. I called them up and told them what was going on and a new one was sent out. Rumor had it that it is the same problem as a computer crashing, it gets confused and shuts down...like it had to much to drink.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff
