    Great advice. I guess I'll use my old 8 pound fish weights for now and maybe look for a new set of 10 pounders when I get in to Pulaski.

    Thanks Rich, I think I'm going to give it a shot with the 12 pounders for right now since I'm coming up in two weeks. Next year I will get a couple of 10 pounders from bikinibottom.

    I was afraid of that. I didn't realize they had a 10 pound limit when I bought them. I thought I was upgrading from the manuals that I have been using for the last several years. Live and learn I guess.
  6. I recently bought a couple of the older style Mag 10's from a member on this site. I had them gone over by A&P Tackle and had him repair or replace whatever he thought needed to be done so that they would be in good working order. So...my question is, I have 12 pound shark weights that I bought last year and was wondering if I can still use them with the "new" downriggers. I was told not to use more than a 10 pound weight!
  7. Adding 3rd battery

    I just realized in my post I wrote I had one battery switch, I actually have TWO switches as described above. The Blue Sea isolator set up looks interesting.
  8. Adding 3rd battery

    I currently have a two battery(starting batteries) system on my boat with a Perko off-1-both-2 switch. My boat has two 4 stroke 250 outboards(if that makes a difference). I want to add a third battery(deep cycle) for running stereo, vhf, fridge, etc when anchored and I want to wire my riggers to it as well. Is this a complicated setup for a marine mechanic or a DIY project? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Andy
  9. Thanks for the downriggers! It was a pleasure meeting and talking with you. Hopefully we will see you at some point on the lake. Andy
  10. Raymarine Autopilot

    Nothing happens when I push auto. I can get them to move when I push the +10 or +1 buttons but they won't go back when I push the -10 or -1 buttons.

    Yeah it's fully installed. I tried to post a pic of the wiring to the computer unit. Looks like it was professionally installed.

    The compass heading is off but I was assuming that it needed to be calibrated.

    It is hooked to a hydraulic pump. When I use the buttons on the head unit I can get the motors to turn to the right but then that is it. When I took the leads from the hydraulic pump directly to a 12 volt source the outboard move one way and the when I reverse the connection they move the other way as they should.

    I talked to someone that told me to touch the motor leads off of the computer unit to the power leads and see if it moves the motors and then switch to see if they go back the other way. I did this and it worked fine. I called Raymarine and they advised me to send them the head unit and the computer unit and they will diagnose it. We shall see.
