    Adding a Battery

    I think you will have a tough time shoe horning four batteries in your console without using the space over the inspection cover. And you will have to add supports in the console floor to handle the added weight. Unless you have a 36 volt trolling motor, three batteries with the Hobo’s backup system design seems to work well.

    Instantly blows fuse?

    I always carry an extra pump cartridge with a Deutsch connector ready for a quick replacement. Livewell pumps are famous for failure, particularly when you have a livewell full of bait! It might be a good time to buy a spare pump and see if it fixes your problem.

    Best EPIRB?

    I have a ACR on board. They have a good reputation.

    Have you replaced the vst filters?

    Splash Well Hatch Question

    I would suggest strongly, that it’s time to bite the bullet and install a larger hatch in your splash well. It’s a relatively easy job.

    HDI Transducer mounting location

    I suggest you mount it near the drain plug.

    Gas Gauge Question

    My gas gauge is way off on my 2200V. I prefer to use my odometer in my fish finder. I reset it to zero at every fill up. My rig consistently gets 4 mpg in mixed running. I usually run 160 miles between fill ups that gives me a 20 gallon reserve.

    How Rough is Too Rough

    I pay more attention to the direction of the seas. I try to avoid a head sea over 2’. My Pathfinder runs ok in a 3’ beam or following sea. Obviously, I slow down when it’s lumpy so I don’t beat up the passengers or the boat.
  9. A little oil/grease leakage is beneficial, because it lubes the seal riding surface and reduces the wear on the seal lip. Obviously, too much seal leakage will cause water intrusion.

    Loadmaster trailer replacement lights

    The Wesbar LED lights that come on a Ameratrail seem to hold up, but I don’t know if they will fit on a Loadmaster trailer.

    Anti-Siphon Valve

    I suggest you check for a air leak at one of your two fuel filters.
  12. It’s call bleed rate. All greases bleed oil, particularly if there is either heat or pressure present. Some grease bleed oil at a faster rate. What I would be concerned with is the oil leakage past the rear seal. Do you have a bad seal or perhaps the seal riding surface is compromised, it’s grooved or rough.

    2001 Year Model

    A 2001 Pathfinder should be a transition boat. It should have the rear scuppers but no front deck hatch and the narrow gunnels. It’s an easy job to install a large inspection plate in the splash well. The wiring is almost 20 years old, I suspect it will need updating.

    What Length Trolling Motor

    A 72” trolling motor is too long for a 2200. If a 60” trolling motor will not do the job, you will not be very happy fishing in those conditions.

    Ameritrail / Pathfinder 2200 set up ?'s

    I have two Ameratrails, one with a standard jack and one with a swing jack. I’ve never hit anything with the standard jack wheel, the only advantage of the swing jack is you have to crank less.( which is nice)
