I have been slowly leading to more or less the same setup as you have except here's what I'm trying to confirm so hopefully you can help. Motor loads can cause interference in low-voltage comm cables, and some of those might make the difference between coming back to port, or not coming back. You will also need glue. Like water pressure in a pipe In a boat electricity is stored in one or more batteries. Carefully clean the inner sides of the keels housing, remove any seaweed and barnacles.
I was told Beneteau will not supply the detailed wiring diagrams. Check them over the winter and replace as needed. Once complete, your rewired dash will snap together with EzAcDc boat parts - or work great with your existing boat wiring. If you don't have a good diagram, or you're intimidated by the arcane electrical symbols on the one you have, make one from scratch using large paper. Shouldn't this be the case? Clean the refrigerator and freezer.
I have enclosed a schematic of the current set up on the boat. Here is another example of a dual battery installation. It has many advantages -- it's easy to handle and performs great in heavy air. An additional switch linking the engine circuit with the domestic circuit so that if the need arises the domestics bank can be used for starting or vice versa. That 6 awg should be okay for normal use depending on the temp rating of the insulation looks like appx 80 amps, but if you use them to start your engine you may burn up a wire. If you're cleaning the bolts and the material is flaking off, it's probably time to replace them. There is no reason to use the 2 switches at the same time.
First, inspect all fitting and clamps for signs of leaking on the pressure side. And also make sure the negative wires from the 2 banks go to the same place. Interestingly, I have just been helping a friend with a Bav - the one we all love to hate! We recommend speaking with your Beneteau dealer or marine paint retailer in your local area. If I were you I would begin with a pencil and paper and begin drawing out a basic electrical diagram of your boat. Anode consumption is to be closely monitored. Does that make sense or is there a flaw with my thinking? When you arrive on board.
Remove all of the old headliner and use it as a pattern to cut the new - cut the new slightly larger because you will have difficulty fitting it as well as the factory and will often be inches off. This isolator causes a voltage drop so the batteries do not receive the full charging benefit from the alternator. Many owners have used it with positive results. If so, this seems unreasonable to me!!! After checks are finished, work the mechanism up and down 2 or 3 times to make sure it is functionning well. H2 would be used mainly to run pot puller and other accessories as needed.
However, I have some question that I hope someone will not mind helping me with please. Serious damage and even electrocution can result from confusing the two. Bumps, cracks, cuts, or kinks. Warm up the part if necessary. May I ask a couple more questions please? The stuff in cans Weld wood works well is much cheaper though.
Bilges: Make sure the bilge is clean and dry. To determine what type of setup you have consult the service manual and check the identification plates on the alternator. They allow you to choose either battery 1 or 2, or both in parallel for starting purposes. Neil Pryde has published rigging and tuning guides. Furthermore, if the gel coat is abraded with coarse sandpaper, the water imperviousness will be destroyed, and the warranty might be voided.
Performing this maintenance item on a regular basis will ensure to keep you and your boat heading in the right direction. One more thing; If you're planning to run comm wiring in close proximity to motor load wiring, use a sheilded cable for the comm circuits. On a downwind leg, shape your sail with your outhaul and van. Clearly from what you are saying that was a poor assumption. It is almost impossible to reglue old headliner material unless it is pretty new or just one panel that can also be stapled. Great looking and easy to install.
