Re: Gear display

I would like to thank each of you for helping me out, I just love this site I really do think that this is the best site ever. Well I wouldn't know what wire to hook up to the battery and man I don't think a half volt is worth doing that work for.

Thank you all again

Re: Gear display

I have one of those Air Rider gear volt indicators, it's supposed to be plug and play, I'm going to install it tomorrow, does anyone know if there will be any voltage drop that would give me a false reading ?

Thank you
Frank

Wow,
That's good to know. Never purchase a Chinese manufactured boat, it might dissolve when it hits water

Hello, I'm adding a grounding block (it's actually circular), do I connect it to the ground post of the battery?
