    What type of steering? Most don't need the motor pulled to get to it.

    It's just a regular Teleflex cable but there isn't enough room between the motor and the wall where the cable comes out and there's also a slight angle.  They had to have put the old one in while they were installing the motor.  I can't see any other way to do it.

  2. I have to remove my outboard (90hp Merc) to replace my steering cable. Do I have to put anything like silicone or something like that in the 4 bolt holes when I put the motor back on the boat?

    Oh yea, it's an aluminum boat.


  3. OK I think I got it.  Take the outboard out of the equation, that's on a stand alone starting battery.  I will disconnect the onboard charger.  How does this look?  I don't plan on using the both position.  The main reason for this is when I run down the first deep cycle I can switch to the 2nd and keep using my trolling motor.



  4. Skipper - yes I have an onboard charger that I was planning on keeping attached to Battery 1.

    Mike - does it matter which battery's negative post I use? So if I'm understanding this I can run the positive wire from my fuse panel to the switch and the Neg wire to the battery neg post on Battery 1. The positive wires from both deep cycle batteries to the switch. Sound right?

  5. I have 2 batteries on my boat now and I want to add a 3rd. Right now I have a starting battery that only has the motor attached to it and a deep cycle with everything else. I want to add another deep cycle and put a switch between the 2 deep cycles so if 1 dies I can switch over to the other one.

    I bought a switch and on the back of the switch there's a terminal for the hot leads for both batteries and the hot lead that would got to he fuse panel or whatever you're powering. Where do the negative leads go??? The directions that came with the switch are horrible.

    I forgot to mention that I have a 90hp outboard and an aluminum boat ( not sure if it matters ).

    If you have any other suggestions like different switch or way to run it that would be great too.
