    House wiring batt.-gctid809726

    Trying to install batt switch and ACR clean up wiring about ten wires with eyelets that are wired directly to battery. I installed add a battery switch from my engine battery and starter. Boat fired up so no problems there. Wired all fused wires to house battery positive all negatives to negative battery and nothing works as far as lights , electronics. Battery switch off position . Turned on battery switch to on and everything working I'm a little lost shouldn't house battery power everything with wires being hard wired from battery? Traced wires from start battery back to motor starter and looks as though maybe house hot might be wired there which would explain why with batt switch off nothing, turn on everything working this sounds odd to me.Any thoughts about this 1990 ciera 2655

    Yes, the house loads are supplied from the stater motors main lug (where battery cable connects) so either battery selection at the MBSS will supply power.

      Question: are you wanting to install a battery switch, as in OFF/ON, or a battery selector switch, as in OFF/#1/ALL-BOTH/#2 ?[/color]

      about ten wires with eyelets that are wired directly to battery.

      Not good!

      In my world, we should see battery cables ONLY connecting directly to our batteries. [/color]

      Wired all fused wires to house battery

      Again, I would suggest battery cables ONLY go directly to batteries.

      Otherwise, we may end up with something that looks like a Rat's Nest: [/color]

      Would you be able to put together a schematic for us that will show your existing scenario? [/color]
