Re: Battery Switches

Hi Pat,

Just for laughs.

Test the voltage between the lead posts on the starter battery and the connections at the back of the switch.

I found that the cables were internally corroded as Amel uses welding cable and not tinned marine wire, Once I changed the cables the engine started very quickly,

Paul, I just went out to the boat and it took a hard pull or two ,but the handle did come off. Did you access the inside to clean the contacts,if so ,was there any problem getting the back off. It won't come as a surprise to you , Georgetown Marina went into foreclosure last year due to poor management.

Thanks for the tip,

The handle on my switch is just to pill off just friction holding it in place.
