Re: Raymarine Ev tiller low battery alarm

I don't think I helped much but thanks anyway. One thing I would suggest is that now, while things are still fresh in your mind, is to make a wiring diagram and to label all of your wires.

Glad your test sail went well.

Re: Raymarine Ev tiller low battery alarm

I am guessing the 4 guage 60 amp wire just needs to be reconnected?
8 guage is good for 24 amps .
If possible i would use the 4 guage as this is less chance of voltage drop.
I aggree with deepfrz do yourself a wiring diagram each time you work on your boat.
You can do it simply 1 page for battery heavy wiring, 1 page for solar and shore power charger, 1 page for bilge pumps , 1 or more pages for circuits from panel.

Re: Raymarine Ev tiller low battery alarm

I wil.

I did reconnect the 4 gauge. I just had it attached to the side of the buss bar that wasn't hooked up to anything. So now that's working and the old funky wire has been removed.

Great news now leave it alone untill something else fails and enjoy your boat.
Oh and thank you for your honesty with mentioning leaving wires off and connections to wrong places as the same thing happens to us poor tradesmen too! Im sure the faulfinding you have done here will help others to have a go and persevere with their fault finding too.
Cheers and beers Dean
