I am installing a 12 volt system in a new custom boat. Nothing is installed at this point. When I first checked here for info I saw that Brotherton's 12 Volt Bible for Boats was recommended as a starting point. So I am mostly finished reading and have come up with the attached wiring diagram. The panels and switch are already purchased, no batteries or bus bar yet. My motor (Suzuki DF 250) has a high output alternator, and my switch has an alternator field disconnect (F1, F2).
Not real sure what to do with F1 and F2, Also, should the bus bar be close to the batteries or the panels? Am I even close??
