Default Lund Pro Guide Electronics Mounting

I have nearly completed mounting my new electronics into my electronics locker. I wanted to mount my 898 and 788 in a way that allowed me to have them at a more visible heigth but at the same time be able to tuck them away into the locker for a bit of security without disconnecting them. I managed this with a Ram swing arm mount and then just a 8" common Ram mount. I put a false floor into the locker which all the extra wires are hid underneath. I will have to just run a 3/4" split loom through the false floor up to the back of the locators to make the wiring neat. I am waiting on four small brackets to fasten underneath the Ram swing mount to give it all the support that it needs.

That looks like a great setup. I have an 1800 Pro-V with the same locker and I have been looking at how I can mount my 2 Hds 7's and swing them out and then swing them in and still close the locker,should work for them also. Thanks for the pics.

Walleye,
You do have a drain hole in your locker so that any water that ends up in the locker can drain into the bilge don't you.
Whenever I make a box or something like that which will be used in the boat, I make sure to put a 1/4 inch drain in each corner of the area.
By having a drain in each corner of the area, you will have good drainage, no matter the attitude of the boat.


Somewhere along the line, the cover will be left open when you are out in a driving rain.

Also, if you are in a driving rain and fishing, you are not going to turn off your electronics I would think. So, be sure to have a good drain in the area to keep things working well.

Very nice job.

REW

Well done!
(fyi, you can save yourself a bunch of PM's if you mention what model # RAM mounts you used)

Great looking set up!

I can not quite see from the pics and was wondering when you have the units in the stowed position is the ram arm still all connected or did you have to completely separate the straight arm from the swing arm?

I used a 1.5" 109H-2BU swing arm and a double ball mount. Just take the tension off of both mounts and fold it back in.
