If you remove the storage tray that holds the fire extingisher (located in the front storage compartment) there is a module with 4 fuses located on it. It contains a spare 10 amp fuse labeled for auxiliary and if your boat has not been tampered, a two wire unused connector (orange and black wires) will be nearby. This circuit provides continuous 12 VDC and is further protected upstream by a 20 amp fuse (located in the main electrical box). If you want switched power, you can use a 12 volt relay and wire the coil to one of the guages purple & black wires, then use the orange and black auxiliary power wired to the relay's normally open contacts to power your radio. Hope this helps
I am installing a Stereo system in my '96 challenger. Unfortunately, these boats do not come with stock systems, so there is no easy way to do it. Because these boats do not really have an ignition system like a regular boat, I am having a hard time finding power that will shut on and off with the boat. Has anyone installed a stereo in a similar model and could give me some pointers. I was thinking of wring both the memory and power wire directly from the battery with a switch for the power so I can at least manually turn it on and off. Is there a better way to do this?
