Can't possibly know without check things with a meter. However, you should always use a GFCI receptacle when working with power equipment outdoors.

I have a bass tracker 2010 Pro Team 175 with a 50 HP Mercury motor. Phenomenal boat. Fished this past weekend and boat would not start when I went to return home. Nothing, no turn over of ignition,

check battery condition with a load test. check charge rate from motor
clean battery terminals and posts to shiny clean
It has been known for batteries to deplete from electrolysis when stationary in the water so ensure that all cables are in good condition
fit a circuit breaker switch on a battery terminal to switch it off when stationary

How do you start 1993 bass tracker?

Bass Tracker? Bass Boat? If its a tiller motor, yank the rope until it starts, or, your arms fall off, whichever comes first! If its electric start, check your batteries are good & fully charged. Make sure your "kill" switch is connected & you're in neutral. Turn the key. In fact make sure you're in neutral for the tiller motor also.

2000 tracker with water in driver side foot well

I'm having the same problem. The water is from the condensation build up because of a blocked drain tube. I thought it was from rain water, but my friend drove my car quite aways w/o air on and it was dry. I drove it on some errands with a/c on and the floor was wet. Here's a video to give you an idea.

Goodmorning. I have a THINPAX Realtime GSM GPRS GPS Tracker TK102. My problem I would like from you to help if possible is that: If the electrical 220 V power is unplugged then the battery normally...

Is the unit being left plugged into a 220 AC supply socket ALL the time?

And is the power supply to that 220 AC socket being switched on and off intermittently as would happen on a boat or RV which is sometimes plugged into shore power?

Or is the unit being used normally in it's covert unplugged mode and then just getting plugged into the 220 AC occaisionally to recharge the battery?

I don't have an electrical diagram for that unit, but if you are not using the device covertly, then one possible solution is to have the tracker plugged into a PORTABLE POWER SUPPLY (power pack), which is in turn left plugged into the AC mains to recharge when necessary / possible.

Here is a link to a Duracell brand 600 watt portable power supply although there are certainly many different brands / models available:

This type of portable power supply could probably power that small tracking device for weeks at a time before needing to be connected to a live AC power supply again to recharge. The power pack could be left plugged in even if the AC was shut off, and the tracker could be left plugged into the power pack. That way the tracker would always be powered by the power pack and could be left turned on all the time with no need to switch it on or off.

It would obviously not be a totally covert setup, but could at least be partially concealed on a large boat or RV which might work well enough if that was your intention.

I realize this is not the type of solution you were originally looking for, so feel free to click on the NOT HELPFUL rating button and another expert will automatically take over and hopefully be able to help you with a better solution.

Good luck and take care.

Mercury outboard 60 motor turning over but not firing up.

get some starting fluid and spray a liberal amount into the air intake, then try to turn over. if it will not turn over with starting fluid you have a problem either with your ignition system, example: plugs, coils, wires, ect. If it does fire and then die out with a shot of starting fluid then you have a carb problem. If the boat has been sitting anything over a month thats where I'm betting the problem is. Post back after you find out if its a fuel, or fire issue and we'll start the repair process.
