How little I know about these mid-size boats...
I have another little pesky issue. I have 2 battery
switches in my engine
room. (The big, round Perko switches)
One is for the starter battery
. The other is for the house bank. The starte battery switch has and on and an off position. The house bank has 1, 2, both, or off.
When using my house batteries with the starter switch in the off position, I tend to lose the charge in my starter battery in what seems like the same amount that my house batteries are being used.
In what seems odd to me, the starter battery shares a common negative battery cable that runs through the house bank and acts as the "ground" for all batteries.
All this leads to a condition of not enough juice getting to my starter when (and ONLY when) my house batteries are low.
Is it common to have the starter battery grounded through all of the house bank?
Could this be causing my starter battery drain, or at least be eating up the starter battery's juice since the entire house bank's negative terminals are part of the starter battery's circuit with the starter?
Anyone had any similar problems?
