H20 Power Cord

10 posts in this topic

My cigarette lighter cord quit working. My unit is about 2 years old. I called Lowrance today, waited a long time to talk someone. He took my address etc. and said he would send me a new one no charge. I have been reading about lots of problems with this cord, just thought I would pass it on.

I've got the same issue with mine as of today?

There is a fuse inside the cigarette lighter adaptor. Unscrew the part on top and the fuse is in there. Be careful it is spring loaded. Could be the fuse is blown.

My fuse is fine, as the light on the plug in comes on, but as of yesterday the unit says there is no external power source hooked up when it is plugged in.It has worked good up until yesterday, and all of a sudden it quit working?

Good luck on getting that cord... I've been waiting on the backorder list for 3 weeks already. Seems like all LEI's stuff is backorderd. I'll just keep buying batteries - Might be time to get some rechargeables.

It's easy to blame the cord, but sometimes (unfortunately) it's the unit itself. My ExpeditionC was acting like that, Lowrance sent a cord, no charge. External power worked off and on again for a while, then it refused recognizing the cord for good and always ran off of the batteries. Lowrance finally asked me to send the unit in (the tech on the phone said something about some ExpeditionC units having a short inside that screwed up recognition of the external cord) and they sent me a brand new unit, again no charge. Never failed since, and now I have a spare cord to boot.

The first time I used my power cord the assembly/plug came apart, and I lost the spring. I took a spring from another 12v power cord plug, cut it to size, put it back in the assembly, and I was good to go. You have to have the spring pressing against the fuse with enough pressure to push the pin out the nose of the plug, or the power cord/plug will not work. That is what I found out with my first power cord dilema.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
