Trolling Motor Mount Transducer Quadra Beam transducer, 200/83/455 kHz. 20/60/40 degrees with built-in temperature. 15' Cable.

Thanks Robert,

Another question, I have the switch for the two transducers which was used for the SI TM transducer.  I am concerned about this switch since it does not "click" in place when switching, it is like silent switches, is this normal or do I have a faulty switch?

George,
Try backing off the rubber boot a little.  If it is too tight on the toggle it will prevent it from moving far enough to “click”.  We have also had reports that when the boots are new that they are stiffer and so will free up and allow the switch to “click” after some use.

Hi Greg,

The only way I get a definite tactile click is when the boot is totally off of the threads.  I have tried threading and clicking from the just on to fully tight.  I could slit the boot but this will hurt the waterproofing.  The boot is shallow and the toggle is pushed through a tight hole in the boot.  Any thoughts on how I should approach this?  I do like to feel it clicking into place to know that it is in place.

Another questions the pics of the XTM 9 QB 09 T appears that the transducer is glued on to the bottom of the trolling motor!  Is this correct?  I am not interested in gluing anything to the bottom of my trolling motor.

George,
There is really nothing more I can suggest on the switch and boot.  These are off the shelf items and so we don’t have design control over them.  Maybe look for another aftermarket switch boot?

The XTM-9-QB-90-T is held in place by metal hose clamps.  I guess if you broke the mount on this transducer that you could epoxy or double-sided tape the transducer in place but I would use the hose clamps to start with.  It shoudl look something like this:

Thanks Greg,

This is the first picture of the transducer that I have seen.  Interestingly all of the sites show a totally different transducer that appears that it is to be glued on.  HB's site does not carry a picture of this model.

Again Thanks

George

George,
Unfortunately we cannot control what some of the retailers place on their web sites (or even what our own web site shows or does not show).  I’m not sure why but I could not find a picture of this transducer except for this one which was posted on the Yahoo web site.  I’ll have to see about getting some better pictures of it.

That picture is of the XSO-9-20 Stick-On Transducer.
