Re: overwhelmed w/ electrical

So, 2 seasons ago, I replaced my stereo player and also used a water-resistant cover like this. As I recall, I had to wire the radio to a harness inside the case and then use the wiring exiting the case to connect to power and speakers. There was also an inline fuse in the mix.

The only way, I could think to do that was by using heat shrink butt splices
(alot of them) Was there another way to do that job?

Re: overwhelmed w/ electrical

Dave, it's in the cabin on a shelf next to my nav station and it's got a wireless remote.

There was no ideal place to build it into the cabinetry. So the case served that purpose and provides some moisture protection. It was a little more wiring than I expected..but it's there for the duration now.
