Re: Autopilot install with a switch

Stupid isn't the term I would use, but certainly ignorant as far as electrical wiring. He should either get the book linked to or hire somebody qualified before he either does some damage or hurts himself.

Re: Autopilot install with a switch

Everybody has been ignorant at some point or another, there need not be shame in that. Fortunately, it's curable - unless you're *willfully* ignorant, but that's a different (and harder) problem. The rare talent is being able to recognize your own ignorance. Seeing it in others is all too easy.

Re: Autopilot install with a switch

Let's cut the OP some slack. He screwed up. He knows that, we know that, no need to keep beating him up about it . After all, there are only two types of people answering the OPs question in this thread:
1. Those who have screwed up at least once in the past
2. liars
So, let's not miss the fact that the OP did a smart thing. Instead of repeating his error with a new switch, he stopped and asked for some advice.
Even better, he got some good advice, quickly.
Even betterer, the OP is following it.
