Marine Electrical Systems

This Link was shared with me by Noelex

It is a free PDF download of "Boatowners Illustrated Electrical Handbook." 288 pages, and so far, very helpful.

Perko Battery Switch Trouble

Here is the link to an excellent article posted by Steve Cyr on his Stella Blue website. Steve has done a great job of documenting his projects, maintenance tips etc and sharing them with others via his website.

Perko Battery Switch Trouble

The article explains the problem & fix he experienced with his Perko Batty Sw.
Note this is a hidden problem unless the switch is disassembled for inspection
