Default wiring question

twin Yamaha F150s
Would like to keep the existing kill switch (in addition to the Fell MOB) so either one can shutdown the motors.

Before I dive in w this install , need to confirm / get clarification on the following.

per https://supportcenter.fellmarine.com...Engine-Install and https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/g...aphics_web.pdf
(MEH install) the black/white pairs (2 since I have 2 motors) out of the MEH connect to the wire pair towards the motors only (but it mentions "kill switch wires").
-yet-
per https://supportcenter.fellmarine.com...amaha-Outboard (on a single motor install) , the black/white pairs can be installed inline / parallel to \both\ the motors and the existing kill switch so either one can be used to kill the motors \ both have to be on the ON position otherwise the motors wont run.

Can someone confirm that \ even with the MEH \ I can (and should) wire each wire pair (black+white) inline / parallel to each \both\ motor + kill switch so either one would kill the motors \ both have to be on the ON position otherwise the motors wont run.

Can I use the single motor install inline / parallel wiring diagram off each of the MEH black/white motor wire pairs (2 in my case).

lastly, if the Fell MOB hub loses power, Will the motors power off ? when the hub powers off does it place the circuits closed ?

Thanks

Hello aa331,

This is FELL Marine, thanks for the question.

1. Yes, even with MEH you can wire in parallel with existing kill switch to retain operation of corderd lanyard, in which case lanyard must be plugged in and FOB connected for engine to start.
2. Yes , you can use the single engine wiring diagram. If you can email us at support@fellmarine.com I can reply with a photo of an actual install on dual Yamaha with MEH in parallel for reference.
3. Correct, if HUB loses power, circuit will be closed and engines will stop.

Thank You,
FELL Support Team
