After taking a "Marine Electrical Systems Basics" course a few weeks ago I now realize the PO had some unusual ideas about rewiring a boat. The worst offenders that I see right off are the use of welding cable from the batts to the engine (jackets already soft) and a strange paralleling technique of the 4, 4D batteries.
Replacing the welding cable is a no-brainer.
I'm going to reroute the cables to parallel the batteries correctly, another no-brainer.
But I'd like to get a little more modern than my "OFF-1-2-ALL" switch and reconfigure the system to the one in the link below.*
Right now, I'm not sure all the batts are being drawn from nor charged!* More investigation required.
I have a 1974 Marine Trader 34' sedan.* Single Lehman 120, small alternator, no genset, no need for super fancy, digital fixes!* KISS.
Does anybody have any experience with the Blue Sea setup in the link? Positive, negative, words of wisdom?
