Lund Pro-V Electronics ?

Question

Guest

I've got a 2003 1800 Pro-V tiller. What is the best way to run the transducer cables up to the electronics center? I'm sure their are also "hot" wires to connect the power chords to as well, but having trouble locating them. Any suggestions?

Run the cable up the back of the transom, securing it every few inches with a screw in cable strap, ( make sure to put a dab of silicon in each screw hole before you screw it on ), and then run the cable through the drain hole in the splash pan. From there, run it through the grommet that the gas and electronic connections go through. There should be a bundle of wiring that runs up underneath the gunwhale to the front of the boat. Run it along with these and secure them all together with zip-ties. The simplest way to connect power, is to run it directly to the battery. Route the wiring right up along with the others. I wouldn't suggest tapping into another circut for the power, as this may overload that circut and result in blown fuses. Some boats have additional accessory circuts wired into the fuse panel just for this purpose. If your's has one of them, that will work fine. I'm not sure off the top of my head if your's has this option and we don't have any 1800's in the shop right now otherwise I would check it for you. It should be marked "accessory".

Thanks guys. I thought there might be orange acc. wires as my last boat had them. I'm assuming they are on the port side and can be accessed through the access hole on the side of the boat. It's got me a little confused because the fuse panel is on the opposite side of the boat from the electronics center. Let me know if I'm headed in the right direction.

Your boat should have 2 accessory slots... they are orange wires coming out of the fuse panel with blue butt to butt connectors on the ends... (open ends).

I would hope that they would have run the wires to the port side... but I'm not sure. You'll have to do a little looking around on this one...

Good Luck!

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
