Guys--I just picked up my new 190 Montauk on Saturday, and I've been installing all the goodies. The dashboard has a switch [for accessory electrical loads]. I looked behind the dashboard. How do I connect [the positive and negative] wires? Do I connect directly to the switch? Or, is the switch wired already? I saw a bunch of wires ,but I was afraid to cut the tie wrap. Any help is appreciated. Thks,

Fred

Fred--You can obtain the schematic diagram for the electrical system of your boat by downloading it from Boston Whaler's website, although it should be included in your owner documentation. The schematic diagram of your vessel's wiring will show you how everything is wired.

Typically the 12-volt positive distribution is run through a circuit breaker to the panel switches. You connect the positive circuit of an accessory load to the switch terminal that you wish to control the circuit. The negative circuit of the accessory load should be wired to the negative distribution bus.
