Depth Tranducer Question...

My transducer has been acting up and when I checked it if found it was loose and siding around. I read in another thread to use 4200 to epoxy it back down and to not get an air bubble in it. I used just enough to cover the already glued outline of the transducer and pressed it down and moved it in a circular fashion to make sure it was air bubble free.

The weird thing now the transducer is blinking and reads incorrectly where before even though it was loose it would read the correct depths until rough water caused it to bounce and flip over...

Any insight?

This is just a thought... I would try to get it loose again , clean it up as well as possible and re-glue it. Also clean the spot where you intend to glue it to. Either 4200 or 5200 will work fine...

Just an FYI, I have had GREAT luck using simple wax from a toilet bowl wax ring. The transducer hasn't moved in 3 years and we hit some VERY rough water from time to time. Make it into a patty and press your transducer into it -- voila. It's that easy. It will not move.

It also allows you to replace the transducer easily in the future, and move it around if the location isn't quite right.

I highly recommend it!
