Question, in my case... if I programmed the time to 10 minutes, would I have any issues with function. Sometimes the boat requires a few tries to start, maybe a fuel pressure issue... If I do ten minutes, worst case is just like in the car, take the keys out and radio can play for up to 10 minutes before it shuts off, correct? Or will that length of delay cause a problem. Excited should be delivered tomorrow!

I see no problems with that. Theory and application is the same as would be for three seconds. Just make sure the relay has that capability in the functionality when programming. I am not certain it will go for 10 minutes.

Successful with the relay! It looks like setting the timing has changed a little bit for the better with the TR-7 relay. Max time delay is 4 minutes 15 seconds, I set for 4 minutes because of my hard starting at times. I will probably have to address that eventually. Anyways, got it wired in and seems to work as expected.

Thanks to all who have helped me with these two mods, much appreciated to say the least, could not have the confidence without this forum!

Thanks,
Grip

Well had a chance to start the boat now that it is back in the lake. I believe I still have power interup upon engine crank/start. So this mod will not work for me... You guys believe wiring direct to battery will act same way, so it looks like I will have to live with it. Any other suggestions?

One cool thing with the readout on the usb power port is I can see that battery voltage drops to 9.5 volts in the cranking phase... for what its worth.

I paid particular attention to my boat yesterday. The head unit stays on in all directions of key switch positions with the relay installed.

Just an FYI.

And during cranking of engine I assume... Dang, not here for some reason. Must be the 9.5V upon cranking, you would not happen to know what your voltage is during cranking of engine would you? Does my 9.5V sound like a weak starter or something, it is original with a ton of starts, I am sure it is tired, does crank slower than I would expect, but usually gets the job done.

Thanks,
Grip

Low voltage while starting is usually an indicator of a weak battery rather than weak starter.

Correct...that is in the starting position as well. I do not know the voltage reading during start. I have a volt readout but never pay attention to it when I turn the key.

I say a new battery is in order. Better now than on the water.

Agree.
