In cold weather the efficiency of dry cell batteries drops with the
temperature. It is a good idea to make sure the batteries are
warm before leaving home.
If the batteries do lose charge, sometimes they can be restored by plac-
ing them in a warm room or car interior.
Never heat the batteries over an open flame or direct
hot air onto them. A fire or explosion could result.
Portable Transducer Assembly
Recommended tools for installation include a slotted screw driver and
two adjustable wrenches.
1. Assemble the transducer and bracket as shown in the following fig-
ure. Attach the transducer to the bracket with the supplied hardware.
2. Make sure there is one washer on each side of the transducer, inside
the bracket. Slide the other washer over the end of the bolt and thread
the nut onto it.
3. Screw the suction cup onto the bracket using the supplied screw and
flat washer. Tie the nylon cord through the hole in the top of the bracket.
When using this transducer, tie the other end of the nylon cord to the
boat. This will help prevent the loss of the transducer if it comes off the
4. Clean the chosen area of the hull before attaching the suction cup.
Locate the transducer on the hull as shown in the following figure.
Don't allow the bracket to extend below the hull, because water pres-
sure against it can cause the suction cup to come off at speed.
