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.

      Had a jake come in at 6:25, thought it was a hen with it putting and cuts.  No gobble or fanning at all.  Caught us by suprise when we seen a little beard.  No bird for Abi yet.

      Finally made it out again.  This time with Abigail.  Bumped 2 birds on the roost walking out.  Hope they weren't toms or there are more near by!   Have heard a couple of gobbles in the distance.  Nothing close.   Good luck
