Select an area that is as centrally located as possible to the functional operation of the craft and to the crafts battery banks
DO NOT locate on a bulkhead backing up to a fuel or engine compartment
DO NOT locate in an exposed area which receives direct water spray. (This principle applies to all electrical equipment)
Normally the panel is mounted on a bulkhead whose rear is accessible for wire installation. Where rear access is not possible, emphasis must be placed upon the use of flexible cables and conductors to permit the panel to be wired fro the outside of the bulkhead. (For this you will need four #6 x 3/4" self-tapping screws to mount the panel).
Locate and drill the mounting holes and make the cutout for installation of the panel. Then secure the panel in place with four #6-32 x 1-1/4" machine screws and #6-32 hex nuts. When installation is being made in fiberglass, a backup strip of wood should be used.
Connect the wire (at least #14). If any possibility of personal contact with the rear of the panel exists, provide a suitable cover or enclosure to guarantee safety.
Your Sea Dog Battery Monitor Panel is supplied with a three position switch. The center position is OFF. The up position is "TEST BATTERY 1" and the down position is "TEST BATERRY 2".
The Switch may be left in either test position to constantly monitor one of the battery banks or it can be left in the off position and then switched to a test position to check the condition of either battery bank.
