Battery Controls

  • Boat Type: Boat Type

I decided to add an additional battery and 1+2 switch for control of both batteries. Battery #1 is to the right of the battery switch under the seat. Battery 2 is behinds the stairs where the original battery was located. I also added a battery condition meter and a hot battery cut off switch which connects to the stereo clock memory, water pump switch and the 12 volt receptacles. I wanted the switches out of the way of foot traffic and near the batteries which is why they are located where they are. Also in the picture is a carbon monoxide monitor which was already on the boat.
