Question

I have a new Lund Angler 1700 boat and I am new to rigging. I installed my depth finder but I can't seem to figure out the wiring for power. I know their is the 4 banks where fuses go, but after that I am confused. I think you hook up the positive to the one side coming off, but where does the ground go? Thanks for any help!!

Some depth finders are sensitive to power level, the best with depth finders is to run it's own cables from the cranking battery. The panels in your boat can reduce voltage by up to half a volt and that's enough to play games with your finder.

Chris is exactly right. Run seperate lines back to the starting battery for the depthfinder. All sorts of problems can result from powering it through a bank.

Greg,

On most lund boats there is a ground block located somewhere under the dash... follow one of the grounds from the switches, or radio (if you have one) to where it's grounded. It has spots for something like 8 grounds.. it has a male spade connector ends...

Good luck!

Greg,
This is probably impractical but on my boat I have a seperate 12v battery dedicated to my fish finder only. Hardly draws any current so the batt. lasts a long time. No RF interferrence on my electronics. Top end speed is not a concern to me so the extra weight is a moot point. Boat still runs 53 fully loaded though. It's all about equipment functioning properly for me. Just a thought....

...if I only had more time off!...

      Every year more and more people come to IT because it is really the technology of the future, but still it is worth knowing what is in demand now, you can find it in this article https://computools.com/automotive-retail/ the sphere is described in great detail and why you need to be a software engineer!

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
