BIG DIESEL

Electrical issue...

3 posts in this topic

My dad has a Lund Tyee with a Lowrance 522c unit. For some reason, everytime we start the boat, the GPS unit shuts off and restarts. Obviously, we either hooked something up wrong or there is a fuse out or something. Anyone help? Thanks!

You have it connected to main battery, when you start your motor it could be 2 options:

1- Draw is too much for sonar, voltage drops below a certain threshold (usually 11volts) and shuts it off then back on immediately, your GPS re-starts and re-locates position.

2-You have it connected to a wire that shuts off power while cranking (to concentrate 100% of power to motor), find another power connection.

1 boat of mine does it as point 1, the other boat doesn't.

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
