12V accesory plug question

3 posts in this topic

I have a question related to hooking up my Lowrance H2Oc GPS to a 12V accessory plug. I know I would not want to hook up a sonar to the deep cycle batteries (24V system), but would there be any interference to a GPS unit while running a trolling motor? I was hoping I would not have to run wires all the way to the back of the boat to get to my starting battery. I know a small gps unit would not draw much from the batteris, but I wanted to make sure everything would work properly. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I think as long as it's 12volts I don't see a big issue.

The problem that I have with mine is that my acc. Where the plug doesn't keep a good connection or the power dips a little were it will shut off. Just havn't had time to figure out that issue yet.

Should be no problem. That is why they make the accessory plug hookups for most GPS units.

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
