Gary, sending folks links to other email "connections" kinda defeats the purpose of these kinds of forums. It's like suggesting that you have an answer but using email or pms, where the end result is that respondents to the topic never get to see the answers! Think of the unforeseen consequences of trying to be helpful.

Links, on the other hand, are quite helpful if they go to other topics on this or other forums where the answer is actually presented. Many of us use useful links to simply avoid retyping the same answers to the same questions to help different people. An example is Basic Battery Wiring Diagrams.

Like these, for example (I have posted these many, many times):

Basic Battery Wiring Diagrams This is a very good basic primer for boat system wiring:,6604.0.html

This is another very good basic primer for boat system wiring: The 1-2-B Switch by Maine Sail (brings together a lot of what this subject is all about)

Please keep contributing, Gary, but understand how these forums work.
