H20 Power Cord

Question

fishhook8

My cigarette lighter cord quit working. My unit is about 2 years old. I called Lowrance today, waited a long time to talk someone. He took my address etc. and said he would send me a new one no charge. I have been reading about lots of problems with this cord, just thought I would pass it on.

There is a fuse inside the cigarette lighter adaptor. Unscrew the part on top and the fuse is in there. Be careful it is spring loaded. Could be the fuse is blown.

My fuse is fine, as the light on the plug in comes on, but as of yesterday the unit says there is no external power source hooked up when it is plugged in.It has worked good up until yesterday, and all of a sudden it quit working?

Good luck on getting that cord... I've been waiting on the backorder list for 3 weeks already. Seems like all LEI's stuff is backorderd. I'll just keep buying batteries - Might be time to get some rechargeables.

It's easy to blame the cord, but sometimes (unfortunately) it's the unit itself. My ExpeditionC was acting like that, Lowrance sent a cord, no charge. External power worked off and on again for a while, then it refused recognizing the cord for good and always ran off of the batteries. Lowrance finally asked me to send the unit in (the tech on the phone said something about some ExpeditionC units having a short inside that screwed up recognition of the external cord) and they sent me a brand new unit, again no charge. Never failed since, and now I have a spare cord to boot.

The first time I used my power cord the assembly/plug came apart, and I lost the spring. I took a spring from another 12v power cord plug, cut it to size, put it back in the assembly, and I was good to go. You have to have the spring pressing against the fuse with enough pressure to push the pin out the nose of the plug, or the power cord/plug will not work. That is what I found out with my first power cord dilema.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.
