Wiring ?

5 posts in this topic

Wired up my Lowrance ice machine with the new high speed ducer to the boat. Only problem is the power wire is only like 3 feet long. Anyone know what type of wire I could use to extend it? I'd rather not buy the wire from LEI. I only need like 4 more feet...not 20. Someones gotta know wiring around these here parts. Thanks

I'd say any type of multi-strand (flexible) 16 or 18 gauge wire would do the trick, maybe smaller but not much if you are going to extend past 4 feet. Keep the inline fuse in there, too. My old man will be doing the same thing for the summer.

It doesnt have an inline fuse. Just the ol red and black...they are very small wires.

I would put one in. Probably 3 amp. If your going to running it of the deep cycle's put the fuse in, cheap insurance.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
