Question

I need to install a direct power source from my battery to my fishfinder/chartplotter. What size and should it be fused?

Top Answer

It will depend on how many amps it will draw. Be sure to size the wire run based on the length and the amps required. It should be fused.

Answer

Yes it definitely needs to be fused. As far as size your owners manual should give you an amp rating which will let you know what size fuse and what size wire you need to run.

Question

I havea 3 wire( red, reen and black) DC circuit runnin to an outlet that I want to split into another run for a second outlet. This looks to have two screws. What do I do with the reen wire?

Top Answer

I assume you are referring to a 110 volt plug. If some the black is usually the hot wire, the red is the return wire, and the green is the ground wire. If this is the case you should change the second outlet to one with a green (ground) connection usually found on the side of the plug. Hope this helps.

Answer

Since you stated DC circuit, I assume either 12 or 24 volt system. You should check to see which is the negative and what the voltage is for the other two wires. Is this perhaps for a bilge pump or nav lights? One wire may be for pump manual on (hot #1), the second (hot #2) is probably level switched. Or if Nav lights, one is for the anchor light, the other for the underway lights. The third should be for the negative, A DC volt meter will solve the question. You should buy a term strip with more contacts than necessary, just for the future. Hope this helps
