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?

    • well factor in cost of living and its a wash
    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck. 
    • Ayup. They asked me to take his place, but I can't stand Rawlings.    http://www.gasmonkeygarage.com/yes-aaron-the-bearded-wonder-is-leaving-gas-monkey-garage/
    • That does look like a fun day!
    • What? This can't be. Aaron's the real car building brains of this show. Richard is just the clown. Together they made it work. Apart?
