Default battery question for glacier bay 2665 owners,3 battery setup?

looks like my gb 2665 will come with 2 batteries,2 outboards(yamaha)but only 1 switch?

ctoolman,

There are many ways, you may want to join/post in the GBowners forum. Assumeing you have relatively new, or new yamaha's, my suggestion to you is to utilize the auxillary charging output of the yamaha, connect this to your 3rd battery for chargeing, then connect a a/b switch between this 3rd battery and your other 2 batteries (either in parallel or how ever you want to be able to utilize this battery for emergency starting). If you want you can connect both auxilary charging outputs (both as in one from each of your yamahas), that way even when you are running single wing your 3rd battery will be charging. Gives an nice and clean seperate 3rd battery for electronics. However there are other many other configurations. do a search on this board and you will find tons of info, nothing special about GB here. Start with http://www.thehulltruth.com/forums/t...119070&posts=7 for a good post.

If you need info on the Yamaha's PM me, be glad to help. Let me know the year/model of you motor.

Welcome to GB ownership if this is your first.
