  19. Tileman I do have mag 10s but I didn't have them hooked up to the other battery yet. Artb I'm not sure how to get pics on here but ill explain it .i have the starter positive going to the common on the switch n the negative going to the negative on the main battery,the accessories positive going to the common on the switch n the negative going to the negative on the main battery,I have a 4 gauge wire going from battery 1on the switch to the positive on the main battery,I have a 4 gauge wire from battery 2 to the positive on the 2nd battery n a 4 gauge wire from the negative on the main battery to the negative on the 2nd battery,but like I said the 2nd battery isn't hooked up yet so those wires are just laying on floor rite now.thanks again hope this makes sense
  20. Back in may I bought a battery switch so I can have two batteries.it seemed pretty easy to put together ,I bought a brand new battery n hooked that one for the starter n accessories I never hooked up the 2nd one yet but left the wires hooked up so it would b easy to put on the 2nd battery just for the down riggers.after about 2 months I went to start the boat n the battery was already drained n the switch was off.any ideas why this may have happened would be greatly appreciated
  21. Ok I don't know how to do that I'll try n get one of the kids to do it
