Re: Battery Switch

Thanks for the reply. I've only had the boat for two seasons and I always used both position(off when away) and I never had an issue. I sail most every weekend with one or two week long trips. There's no AC or fridge. The biggest energy draw is the autopilot and the nav lights. I'm on a mooring.

Looks like I need to pull apart the wiring to know what's going on. On a side note, I've always had problems with the tack. At times it reads high and then doesn't read at all. The original wiring diagram has the tack lead off the alternator. On the alt installed, there's a plug leading to the Balmar regulator. I don't know how the tack is connected.
