My Solix on the bow was beeping low voltage after 10-15 minutes of turning it on as well as the Helm Solix. Thought it was not wired heavy enough. My buddy David, wired me in 8 Gage wire from the battery all the way to the bow. When David went to place the connectors onto the battery post, he notice the main ground wire was loose on the battery post. That was tightened down and 8 gage wire connected. Works great, left the graph on for 4 hours laastnight and still showed 12.4 volts. Ran a string up to the bow also for future wire for my future Live Scope. THANKS DAVID

Lesson Learned, always check your Battery connections!!!!!

I thought the lesson was going to be that you should have wired it with a minimum of 10 Ga. wire when you installed it. cheers

8ga for a graph and 6ga for a trolling motor, one seems like overkill.
