Lowrance H20c Wiring Question

6 posts in this topic

I haven't picked up my GPS yet but I am starting to fit out the boat. I plan to run wire to the battery in the bow for a power supply. I'm going to get a Lowrance I Finder H20c. What type of adapter does it come with? (cigarette lighter) What gauge wire should I run? Thanks

Yes they come with a Cig. adapter. I would go with a 14-16 gauge wire.

Yep find a 12 volt cig. lighter plug in and you will be good to go. I would put a inline fuse on the cig lighter as well. The cord for the H20 has a fuse already but if you have that kind of plug in you might from time to time plug other things in that don't have fuses built in.

I would use 14-gauge and fuse accordingly, probably 5-amp, so you can use the power outlet for other things like a handheld spotlight, too.

Ya think 5 amp should work well? Just bought a female adapter and it came w/ a 15 amp and don't know what to lower it to. Can't find a min or max amperage in gps manuel or on website. I was about to look @ fuse panel in the truck and go w/ that. Haven't gotten there yet though.

       I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff
