  1. After researching Wylie's suggestion, it is a much better route but at an added cost and install headache. if you have the time, talent and money go the Blue Sea route. This kit looks like it has what you would need. https://www.bluesea.com/products/7650/Add-A-Battery_Kit_-_120A Would that be a good kit Wylie_Tunes?
  2. I'm running the battery dr. for about 3 years now and it works great for me. It makes sure the start battery is always fully charged and then starts charging the house. I monitor the batteries and if they start acting weird then I replace. While the boat is at the house I also have an onboard charger that I plug in. My boat had several wires connected to the single battery from factory. I found the wires that go to the starter and alternator and put them on the start battery all the other wires went to the house battery. everything works like a champ. one thing I did that the battery dr. didn't have was I put a switch inline so when the boat is at the house, and I plug in the onboard charger I can turn off the battery dr. I put the switch in line for the ground wire (4) off the battery dr. When I get in the boat, i flip the switch on and the battery dr. does the rest. I think I did a write up on my install. I'll see if I can find it. Edit: didn't find where I did a write up but Wylie-Tunes and I discussed it on this thread also.
  3. Just swapped the valves out. Have to lake test but should be good to go.

    JL Audio 12w3. 1.75 cu. ft. Ported enclosure tuned to 30hz. Love the JL sound. Very happy with the outcome. Only complaint is that now the dash rattles.

    Redid my sub box this weekend. Moved it from the observers compartment to under the helm. Cut the hump out and built a box to fit there.
  6. Sub Help: Who’s Cut Their Hump?

    I cut mine this past weekend. 2008 Avy.
  7. Lots of people have to other models. Search for ballast upgrades. I've done it to my Avy and getting ready to do more.
  8. Just bought the motorized valves above (remove power they return closed, say open as long as power is applied). Going to install this weekend hopefully. Let you know the outcome. My sprinkler valves were not working correctly anymore, they lasted 12 years so I can't complain.
  9. Didn't happen unless there is pictures! lets see the new ride!
  10. Not sure of any changes those years.

    So I rebuilt my Downfire mounts. This way I can move them a little farther outboard and give me more room between the speakers. My original ones are for sale if anyone wants to add Downfires to a tube tower. Pictures in next post.
  12. you will love the new one. Just easier to get the wave. If you can swing the added cost, don't look back and go new. My $.02
  13. Looks good. I did a very similar job a few years back for my Cabelas 2 bank charger/maintainer. My batteries and maintainer are under my observers seat.
  14. check power and ground at the switch. Unplug both the port and starboard or center and check power and ground. IF both are good ohm check the wires to the out pump (easiest) and make sure the wires are good. Sounds like a power/ground issue. Use the working switch connector to figure out which switch wire is which for the non-working switch.
