    I had someone steal my batteries out of my 2011 201 O/B sun deck sport. Does anyone have a schematic of how this compartment is supposed to be wired. thanks Pwalker1

      If you are just using 2 batteries for house/starting purposes you should connect them in parallel. Simply put if your boat system is 12 volt, you connect the positive posts together, then the negative posts together. This doubles the amperage output but the voltage remains 12 volt. google it!

      I googled a picture of it when I took mine out last year and forgot to label how they went together.  I did take a picture that I will attach.

      I'm having electrical problems and suspect the battery connections are wrong.  Could someone repost the files above?  The links don't appear to work any longer.

      Thanks Jeronimo21!  My connections look similar.  Since there aren't any small leads connected to positive terminals, I guess there's a hot lead out of the battery selector switch that provides power to the bilge pump even when the battery selector is in the OFF position...?  What else gets powered when the selector is in OFF?  Thanks again!
