Anyone have a good picture of their Blue Sea switch installed??


Instructions helps, but I do much better with pictures for my installs

Would like to hear thoughts on this set up...

Why are red and black being used? Is the bar at the bottom a ground buss? What is the post to the left (lower) of the switch used for? The black box at the top- assuming it's the isolator, you can probably omit the fuses after it if the cable length is less than 12"- the chance of cutting it is slight and the fuses would be better used after the isolator unless there's a danger of the isolator not being able to handle the current passing through it.

Where does the red cable come from (top right)? Looks small.

Beats me, just a picture I found on the internet. Was curious if this was a good set up, apparently it's not.

I will take some tomorrow of my setup and post them up soon when I get a chance (along with pictures of other things I owe some people on here). Mine has been working flawlessly for a few years now and I really couldn't be happier with it. I can help you with it...I did mine from the directions but it would have been a lot easier with somebody describing it.

This looks nothing like mine whatsoever. Seems like they used the switch and relay for some other type of project.

I have a question:
We have a 2012 x2, We left the battery switch on in single battery and last night I went to the boat and dead battery, turned into duel and still dead. Can this be possible?
And when do you juse single and when duel? We always juse single battery.

Thanks! I would love to see how people have theirs laid out and I could mimic it lot easier. I have the Bluesea switch ordered.. Just trying to decide on the battery to go with.

Here is a diagram and installation instruction from BLUE SEAS. And a picture of mine installation. My location is under the starboard rear seat with additional Battery in rear locker. I am using the start isolation option also. Only have 1 6channel amp and stereo for load.

It could be possible to have 2 loads left running, one on each bank. If your boat has the Dual Circuit Plus switch and a VSR, then the odds are slim that a load on the main bank would also draw down the house bank with the switch left in the on position.

I would 1st determine what rand down the battery(s), then test and recharge the batteries if they test good.
