  1. See the diagram below and in the following link. Add-A-Battery Kit - 120A This system keeps both batteries charged automatically, but isolated so your start battery does not get discharged by your electronics. The switch is ON/OFF/BOTH. BOTH is only for emergency if your start battery is low for some reason.
  2. Try this...Under "Account Settings", select "Content View Behavior" then select "Take me to the latest comment" or "Take me to comments I haven't read"

  4. Tough fishing out of ibay so far this spring, a few sporadic salmon and incidental lakers, have not tried for browns. Sent from my SM-T820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. You “can”, but to reduce the possibility of ground loops and interference between electronics, you should connect all negative returns to the ground bus bar. If you cannot upgrade the bus bar you would be better off “double lugging” the second battery to your ground bus bar than connecting it to the negative terminal of the first battery. See the diagram below and in the following link. Add-A-Battery Kit - 120A

  7. Sounds like your braid might be slipping in the spool. Did you use tape, mono backing, or other technique to better secure braid to spool? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Get a few of these for your boat and fishing partners. https://www.identicards.com/productcart/pc/Great-Lakes-Salmon-Trout-Ident-I-Card-Waterproof-Freshwater-Fish-Identification-Card-p30578.htm?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIkMWczveV6gIVCm-GCh0-xggTEAQYASABEgIt3PD_BwE Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I believe there are 4 magnets in the spool that the control board counts as the spool rotates. Maybe you lost a magnet on the spool or it is not being sensed? It would give an error almost exactly what you are seeing in your original post. Sent from my SM-T820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. https://www.bluesea.com/products/7650/Add-A-Battery_Kit_-_120A This makes it foolproof.....switch is OFF or ON most of the time....BOTH if you need both batteries to start in an emergency. ACR keeps both batteries isolated from each other, but charged if connected to a charging source. Sent from my SM-T820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Make sure your "little portable 12v battery" is up to the task by checking the voltage with the spotlight attached. If the spot is a regular incandescent it will light even at low voltage, where your LED lights may not. Sent from my SM-T820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. I have the DRx-10 Depth Raider. I used torpedo speed and temp for a year or so. I stopped because it tended to twist or untwist after several outings even with a ball bearing swivel and was a bit of a pain to re-terminate. The other issue I had was the PIC voltage on my cannon downrigger would cause the Depth Raider to read erratically until I insulated the antenna coil from the metal sheath on the torpedo cable. At the end of the day I did not notice any improvement depth range and since I had to service the torpedo cable more often than with a coated cable, I went back to the coated cable.
  13. I moved my Depth Raider from the dash to the rigger a few years ago. If I recall the antenna cable is already a shorter cable that attaches to a longer cable to get to the dash. All I needed was a male to male adapter to connect the antenna to the head unit. In my case I have the drx version, the adapter was a TNC....not sure but older ones might be an RCA connector. I just figure eight and tie-wrap any extra cable.
  14. I have both and found it is not simply an offset. I calibrated gps, depth raider, and fish hawk to read identical at 2.5mph (in calm water)...at 3mph on depth raider, fish hawk reads 3.3; at 2mph on depth raider, fish hawk reads 1.8. Also changes in speed can be seen on depth raider in a few seconds; changes on fish hawk D version take about a minute to display. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. I think it is about 9-10ft.....set to be able to net fish vs best picture, but fine for video. Sent from my SM-T820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
