I have already posted something about this before, but am looking for a little more detail if any members can help.
I want to install a radio in my SIB. To power it I will use a battery (any tips on a small light 12v battery that can take a pounding?) and intend to charge the battery from the 2 pin connector out on the front of my Yam 20d outboard.
The question I have ...is what I will need to do that?
I am assuming that the power supplied from the 2 pin out on the motor will be a little erratic?? so some form of regulator is needed maybe? Anyone got any ideas about this..or indeed has set up a similar system themselves?
What equipment did you use?
My intention was to clamp the battery into a battery box, and that in turn be attached onto a bracket fixed to the underside of the bench seat. The radio would also be mounted here. Any advice suggestions on a battery cut off switch or fuse panel?
Loads of questions here, but would like some advice before going any further with it...
