Battery Select Switches
Use your battery select switches correctly to ensure maximum safety and battery life.
Battery select switches are found on boats with two or more batteries.
They designate which battery or battery bank is being used for starting
the engine(s), powering the accessories on board, and receiving a charge
from the outboard engine(s). There are four positions on the switch: 1,
2, BOTH (sometimes labeled 1+2) and OFF. Position 1 draws from Battery
1 or Bank 1;
Position 2 draws from Battery 2 or Bank 2. The BOTH position is utilized
when you cannot crank the engine in Positions 1 or 2 alone due to weak
batteries, and combines the power from both batteries or banks.
After starting an engine the switch should be returned to the 1 or 2
position. We do not recommend operating for extended periods in the BOTH
position. In normal use with twin engines, select Position 1 on one
switch and Position 2
on the other so both batteries or banks are being used and charged. On
single engine applications, alternate between Position 1 and 2
The OFF position should be used only when the engine is not running to
secure the electrical system and prevent accidental discharge. The bilge
automatic float switches will still operate when the battery select
switch is in the OFF position. Note: Never turn the battery select switch to the OFF
position while an engine is running, including passing through the OFF
position when switching from 1 to 2. This can cause damage to the engine’s charging system.
