G'day all, Firstly, I am loving this site. It's so good to find a place like this with so much good information. Anyway, the issue that I have is that I have just done a rewire on an old 4.9m fibreglass runabout, with a Merc 90 on the back. Having done a heap of research on how to do the wiring I was pretty proud of myself when everything worked the way it should when the switch was flicked...at least I thought so. The problem that I'm having is that everything works beautifully when it's just me and the boat sitting on a trailer in the drive. However, when I turn the key to the acc position (the one just before the engine kicks over, I lose it all. Turn the key off, everything comes back. Obvioulsy I'm missing something in the wiring that goes to the key so if anyone can help me I'd appreciate it. I've got a marine mech who can do it and an auto elec that I can contact as well, but I'd really like to try to get this solved just so that I know as much about the boat as possible. If anyone has some ideas I'd be most grateful. I'm happy to send pics of my wiring if you need them. Cheers Cooky
Hi all, I have purchased a second hand Minn Kota 55lbs Ipilot. I have installed it on my boat now I am confused as hell about what is the correct wire to run from the battery to the connected Anderson Plug? I have to run a cable approx. 5.4m from the back of the boat to the front, I’ve looked online and Minn Kota say I need a 4 AWG rated battery cable to give the rated power needed. Problem is finding it? All I can find is B&S rating at Whitworths which is different and they couldn't advise the correct one. A 4AWG has a 21.14mm2 verse a 4B&S which is 20.26mm2. I can’t find anyone who sells marine tinned battery cable in 4AWG except in the USA? Please can you guys tell me what size cables you run and where you got them from? So long as they are a similar length to what I need. Thanks
