    Trickle charger question...

    My Ericson 30+ has never had an onboard battery charger. I’m thinking about eventually installing one but haven’t really felt the need.

    In our 1988 E38-200 there are several white hoses that serve as access between different parts of the boat for wiring (for example between the starboard setee cabinet and the bilge.)

    wiring bilge switches when using ACR and 1/2/Both/Off Switch

    In doing the research and planning for the rewiring of my boat, I've frequently consulted Don Casey and Nigel Calder, but I've found Maine Sail's many pictures and postings to be especially helpful, especially when planning the main circuit. Maine often discusses the use of an Echo or ACR and...

    alternator wiring

    I was trolling thru an alternator thread from a couple years ago and found a post by Maine Sail which showed the back of a 90 amp Leece/Neville alternator. (I'd link to it, but for some reason I can't copy or paste from the website field). I expected to see a wire capable of carrying 90 amps of...

    Questions wiring in marine stereo

    I am wiring in a new marine stereo, Sony CDX-M10 (boat did not previously have one) to an '87 32-2. I have a couple of questions: 1. The primary power wire will obviously go the the switch on the DC panel. The secondary power (for the stereo memory) needs to have constant power. Where is the...

    Temperature Gauge Wiring

    The previous owner of my E29 had disconnected the Water Temp gauge for the Universal A4--as he believed it had a short. I have searched the web for a wiring diagram for the four terminals on the back of the gauge--with no luck. I actually tried to remove the gauge from the panel but it seems...

    Wiring harness on E38 - 200

    When I installed speakers in the salon of my E38 I was real happy to find that speaker wire had been run to the V berth at manufacture. When I prepared to install refrigeration it was great to discover that wire had been run from the control panel to the galley and back to the lazerette...

    E-30+ mast wiring

    I decided that as long as I had my mast I would replace the wiring inside the mast. (talk about making work for yourself) Because of the twists and turns the wire follows it is impossible to run any type of messenger as you pull the old wires. Their is a wire raceway on the back side of the mast...

    E30+ Electrical wiring question

    I would appreciate some help in locating the wiring connections for the lights on the mast (deck, steaming and anchor) at the mast base. None of these lights work on my 1984 E30+, and the bulbs look ok (I know that's no guarantee), but there is no power at the bulbs, so I'm thinking it may be...

    I have dropped the mast and installed a deck light on the mast of my '84 E-26 (#256). There is a 4-pin connector on a wiring harness coming out of the deck, sealed in with sealant, to mate with the connector into the mast harness. Luckily, there is a spare pin on the connectors to accomodate...

    battery charger wiring

    According to my diving service (whom I am not convinced is truthful) I am going through one shaft zinc a month. They never leave the remnants behind so I can't verify and I refuse to hop in the nasty water of Marina Del Rey. BUT, I would not be surprised if I had stray current so I'm inspecting...
