Need Electrical Help?If you’re trying to track down info about a specific boat wiring subject, please use the search box or list of categories below. I have two cranking batteries that are for all electronics on the boat and they are charged via the alternator on my 135hp OPTIMAX. I think I want to have a boat wiring system that allows me to charge all four batteries via switching or gizmos via the alternator. I see several things on the internet that cover the topic but none are based on advice — just a promise to make everything perfect.
If you put the circuit protection in the same area as your gas tank, then they need to be ignition protected. As for wire gauge, since BEP suggests a 70a fuse, I am assuming 8 gauge wire to and from the VSR. The BEP guys recommend disconnecting the ignition source when disconnecting any battery in the system. Even if you install a circuit breaker near your ignition switch, I would still run the circuit through the ignition switch. I have a 1989 Searay 390 EC with three group 27 batteries, OK for starting, but with only 115 RC hardly enough for our needs while at anchor.
To replace the single (house) battery, I have purchased two 6V Trojan T-125 deep cycle batteries with a RC of 447 each, which will yield a total of 894 minutes of reserve capacity. Please explain the correct way to hook-up the two new batteries to each other, and the correct hook-up between the two new batteries and the existing batteries. How would I tell if the battery charger is the problem, not the boat wiring or battery switch?
This past summer was my family’s first season with the boat and I found the problem by staying overnight, and running minimal electric through one battery only.
As for testing a battery charger, Don Casey has published an excellent explanation of how to do so at the Boat US website. I am completely re-doing the wiring on an older center console fishing boat with twin inboard engines which will be our new display boat.


I would like two dedicated starting batteries (one for each engine) and a deep cycle house battery. I want the system to charge the starting and house battery regardless of which engine is running and with as little operator input as possible. Install one between your port engine battery and the the house battery and the other between your starboard engine battery and the house battery. Via email, text message, or notification as you wait on our site.Ask follow up questions if you need to. Would frying the fuse on the starter keep the ignition switch from turning on the gauges - buzzer - etc?

The engine alternator will only charge the trolling motor batteries while the engine is running.
I live on Long Island, the boat is on the hard and winterized now, but it’s in my yard, I have access to the wiring and switch, the batteries are in the house.
The battery switch position should have nothing to do with whether both batteries get charged.
I would charge the batteries completely from a different charger and then take the batteries to your local AutoZone and have them test the batteries. You can swap the outputs (Battery 1 to Battery 2 and Battery 2 to Battery 1) to see if the problem travels.
Since it is a fishing boat it will often be run on one engine while trolling but not the same one every time. These VSRs operate as automatic battery switches that complete the connection when your alternator is charging and break the connection when the alternator is not. For example, if the port engine is running, the alternator will first charge the port engine battery.


I would use either ANL or Bussman Surface Mount 100A Ignition protected circuit protection within 7” of each battery to protect the wires.
The lights work, I have 12 volts coming from the battery and the incoming wire to the fuse block does have 12 volts to it. It is nice to know that this service is here for people like myself, who need answers fast and are not sure who to consult.
I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around. Not only did you answer my questions, you even took it a step further with replying with more pertinent information I needed to know. You are invited to join our public Boat Repair Forum to seek assistance from other members. Made from special gray PVC formulated to match the aluminum color of the boat and secures with stainless fasteners. As many of you have pointed out, there generally isn't any real content at a lot of sites, and there is our real difference.
If you only run the engine for a short period of time and the trolling motor for a long period, the trolling motor batteries will never be completely recharged. The wiring is simple enough but the whole charging system layout is a bit beyond me at this point and I want to make sure I get it right. The port VSR will complete the connection between the port engine battery and the house battery.
Just jot a line or two about it in your email and we will attempt to follow it up and expand it for you, if you'd like us to.
When the combined system is charged, the starboard VSR will complete the connection between the starboard engine battery and the house battery. When the engine is shut down, the VSRs break the connections and all batteries operate independently.
