    Older Pathfinder 2200V - Battery Placement

    here is a picture of when it was 4 battery. the 5th battery sits in front of the others now. the small black box with the wires is the yandina trollbridge on the fly charger.

    Older Pathfinder 2200V - Battery Placement

    I have an 04 2200TE with 5 batteries in the console. 2 group 31 over 2 group 31. and a smaller cranking battery. i think the cranking battery is a 24 but would have to look. Still have room for tool box extra gal. of oil etc.

    HPS Transducer Install

    if i understand right you have a shoot thru garmin in the tank well and a transom mount not installed and all are garmin. keep the shoot thru use it and then put the transom mount in the pocket slightly lower than normal to get good flow on plane. you should be able to use both and tell the unit which transducer for each function.

    23HPS, 2500 & 2600 structure scan transducer help

    Terry S is correct. When dealing with sidescan you must look to the left and right and nothing can be lower. From the side picture the V just above the plug is the limiting factor so right next to the plug is the best place but there you have to consider the interference on the prop. From the old days of sidescan you could find out just where on the unit each crystal was. I have not heard any talk about the layout of crystals on these new 3 in 1 transducers.

    Chrome /metal rod holders console

    If I remember correctly the are a 15degree rod holder. Others that know better may chime in, but remove one and compare it to a 15 degree holder

    What's this?

    I've got some extra zebcos if you need a few more rods for the test runs.

    HPS Transducer Install

    depending on your demands the old transducer should still work but may not have the range for chirp, but i would use it until you trade it out. if changing out I would look at all the options and place the best possible.

    JL AMP - MX4/500 or M/400

    I would go with the 400/4. It will push the 7.7s nicely and if you upgrade things you can bridge it to get 200 amps to 2 8.8s.

    Rewire Project - '00 Hewes Bonefisher

    on the shrink wrap labels you can get clear shrink wrap and write on paper or a printed label and shrink wrap over it. one of the best crimpers is a hydraulic system with interchangeable dies for different size terminals, get it onlie or harbor freight. for easy uniform wire stripping get a pair with the jaws that do it all in one motion.

    08 2200TE Nav Lights LED upgrade Question

    that vent should be the horn. leds give a much more intense light and may shine,reflect and be distracting on the console.

    storing trolling motor on boat?

    I would unplug it and leave it on. some of the quick releases have the potential to put a lock on it. it would discourage the casual theft but if someone really wants it they are going to steal it no matter what

    Gas Gauge Question

    on my 02 TE filling it up on the water or trailer and depending on the tow vehicle full to the brim will vary with how the boat sits. can vary as much a 7 gallons. those air pockets can be hard to shake out

    Gas Gauge Question

    When you break it down there are three ways to know how much fuel is in a tank. the first is a sensor that tells a gauge either analog or digital what the level of fuel is at that instant. this instantaneous signal will vary on boat attitude and movement of fuel. the gauge can use this information and show it as full to empty, # of bars or convert to gallons but it all is just a sensor. the second is to calculate fuel burn and subtact it from a known volume of gas. when you add fuel you MUST tell it how many gallons you added so it can add that back to the available amount of fuel. The third way is old fashion and that is a dip stick not being familiar with command link i don't know if it works on fuel burn or a sensor.
