    Default Cannon Mag-10 Power Cables

    I have 5-year old Cannon Mag-10 downriggers, and one power cable has failed. Current version of said part has been redesigned, and upgrading promises to be very expensive. Can anyone suggest where I might find an old (flat) power cable (I need the femal ebattery side - motor side is good)?

    Tried AK Perf RV/Marine, that's where I got the bad news. Will try Dewey's. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks, Chris

    If you're not able to find it locally, I'm sure you could order it from these folks:

    I replaced mine with a trolling motor plug like these:

    I picked mine up at polar wire.

    Just out of curiosity, what might have caused the failure? Salt corrision? I have the same units (Mag 10's)

    My conections, both male and female corroded.

    Thanks S.O. I'll be revisiting this in the not too distant future. Did you just cut the plug ends off and re-wire?

    My male end is good, but the female had two problems - rubber sheath on the cable became brittle (reason unknown) and cracked/split. Also, the connector got enough corrosion before I greased it that it basically disappeared. Little late with the dielectric grease on that one.

    Maybe I'll just try the new plug on both ends. Thanks for the suggestions, keep 'em coming.

    I replaced the entire power cord. Pretty easy fix and this is coming from someone with very little electrical experience.
