I assume that you used mineral oil to fill the housing? I have installed a few of these inboard transducers and found them to be unreliable. It is possible that you are getting RF ''noise'' from the engine. There are filters that can be installed to eliminate the problem. I''m sorry to say that the only sure solution in my opinion is to install a thru-hull.
