    305 battery config.

    So I have a new to 2005 305 - very happy with her. I have a two battery set up with two 350 mags. The batteries are in parallel - what s the config for the swicthes - manual says do not run the engine when the two battery switches are on, Should it be engines on ONE and house on TWO? Help please.

    Cheers

    It should read not to run the engines with the battery switches turned off.

      One more thing never switch, battery switches when engine is running, it will blow the diodes in the alternator , now some switches are protected but why take a chance. Protected switches are marked.

        For some reason, similar boats are often wired differently. Generally, one battery should be starting and one house but it isn't always the case. Only way to know is to follow the wiring. As previously stated, the manual is in correct.
