Are those battery isolators waterproof? They're normally mounted in a sheltered position.

Those are IP66 - protected against powerful water jets.

Patience, patience.

I have a draft plan for a 6' bespoke stainless steel light pole to be fitted on the transom, complete with all round LED white light and platform for my Metz antenna. Only on hold due to a lack of funds. The same company that make the Avon MOD alloy lightpoles are going to fabricate it.

There's a plastic housing goes over the back of the battery isolator which was removed to install wiring. It's bone dry... and I jet wash the boat after I've been out. When I fitted it, it was a snug fit to start, and waterproof seal applied with Sikaflex.

Thank you Rokraider and Erin.

Navigation lights are now working, and switch illuminates on and goes off.
