I cut this wire yesterday when I deployed my TM. The graphs and trolling motor worked without issues so I’m a little confused as to what I actually cut. I’ll need to look for a replacement.

Any help would be appreciated.

Us2 wire from the built in transducer on your TM.

He must not have intended to use the built in transducer if the graph continued to work, or he hasn't selected the transducer for that bow sonar unit that he thinks he's using.

Looks like a Minn Kota TM. Are you using Humminbird graphs? If not, don't worry about that cable.

Yes, it's a Minn Kota Ultrex TM that I'm using with Lowrance HDS 3 units.

Don't need it then. That's the cable that will link the ducer on the trolling motor to a Humminbird. Assuming yours is mounted to it or you are using the one from on the rear of the boat.

He has something connected to it. (Note the two silver connector sleeves indicating something is attached.) So, it doesn't appear to be something "for Humminbird only" or it wouldn't have a connection. Those connector barrels look like the ones on the US2 Sonar adapter cable for Lowrance sonar units. It also looks like he did not fully cut the center conductor, which is why the sonar is still working, in my opinion.

To the OP: Follow that cable from the 2 silver barrel sleeves and I believe you will find it makes it's way to the sonar input of your HDS unit. The trolling motor's US2 transducer appears to be connected to at least an adapter cable, or there would be a single silver knurled collar at the end of an unused cable.

I have an Ulterra trolling motor on my boat. I cut the insulation on my US2 cable when we went out on Fri. I taped it up and put some mesh split sleeving on it to protect it. Today we went out and it got another cut in the insulation in a different spot. How the heck do you keep this from happening with the trolling motor winding up like it does, especially when it is on spot lock.

I am not using the US2 in the trolling motor, but thought I might like to be able to at some point but I have no idea how to keep this cable from damage.
