Fish pro

 Any other fishpro owners on here? Im having trouble with my sounder an thought id ask here before opening things up. Its always been a bit sketchy but the other day (during glamour conditions) it just shat itself and would only read while in gear and travelling between 4-10kph whilst stopped or drifting all i had was a flashing screen. Having to drive over ground in less than 10m isnt ideal so i gotta suss it out and dont really wanna pay $150ph workshop labour. Any help ideas appreciated.

 Haven't checked yet, gotta pull part of the ski apart to get to engine bay. Works fine with a bit of movement but still or on a slow drift it just flashes depth and doesn't read a bottom. I've always had lowrance so garmin is all new for me. For all i know it could just be sounder set up.

 Just checked all connections

 Just checked all connections and all good, tranny is clicking away. Im guessing its a fluid issue. The tranny is not screwed to the in hull mount so I'd say that over all the bumps its slowly let in air and lost a little fluid. So ive topped it up blocked the fill hose and fingers crossed i can mark some slobs on Tuesday. I'll need to suss some screws out tho and fix the tranny down properly.
