Q. What size fuse does the Traxstech Down-rigger use?

A. It is a 30 Amp fuse. Maxi fuse holders and Maxi fuses are recommended for the in-line fuse used on the positive (white) wire lead. A 30 AMP circuit breaker could also be used in place of the inline fuse if you have a good place with easy access to mount it to.


Q. How should I wire my Traxstech Down-rigger? Should I run lines for each rigger separately with inline fuses near battery then circuit breakers near the riggers itself?

A. Each rigger should have its own wiring with inline fuses. It is not required to have both fuses and a circuit breaker.


Q. I have 2 Traxstech Down-rigger can I run one set of wires for both riggers?

A. No, Do not run multiple riggers from the same set of wires. Each down-rigger should have it's own set of wires.


Q. What gauge wire should I use to install my Traxstech Down-rigger?

A. 10/2 wiring is needed if the leads are 15 feet or less in length for a single down-rigger.

If you are wiring for multiple riggers going to an actual fuse/circuit panel, then we recommend 4 or 6 gauge wire as the main feed to the panel in the back of the boat. Then use 10 gauge wire from the panel to each rigger.


Q. What brand of plug do you recommend for the Traxstech Down-rigger?

A. We recommend using Marineco (70 AMP) 3 wire charging/trolling system plug. They are sold on Amazon.
