Boat Electrical Question

4 posts in this topic

I just recently got a new boat and i have a few questions that hopefully someone can answer.

The boat came with two batteries and until yesterday i thought both of them were hooked up. But when i opened it up and looked one of the batteries wasnt hooked up. There were wires right there that i figure are the ones that are supposed to be hooked up to that battery. The wires are coming from some box(in the picture below).

Does anyone have an idea what these wires are from?

Also on the bow of the boat by the trolling motor there are some controls(livewell timer, ect) there is also a spot where some wires from the trolling motor foot pedal go into that says charger 2-12v and next to that is the charger fuse. Now my question is where would the onboard charger be? I couldnt find it. Could it be whats in the above picture?

Any help would be great. It sucks running out of juice 3 hours into the day...

I would contact the old owner if you can and ask him these questions, he should know the answers.

It looks like what's shown in the picture is a breaker, probably the main breaker for the two batteries - one button for each.

I would follow the wires and verify where they lead before I would plug them in.

With respect to the second question - boat manufacturers have one front panel they put in every boat, regardless of what it has. Just because you have a switch for charging doesn't mean you have a charger, which I would suspect is the case here.

What brand boat is this?

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
