There's only one way to set up the network right. However, *which* device is plugged into what "T" doesn't matter, as long as each device (ep-20 is one device) is on the *bottom" of a "T".

I suggest you read this stuff and follow it to the letter:

Make sure the engine is running when you perform the setup. As long as you aren't doing something like "restore factory defaults" then it shouldn't do that. Try this. If it doesn't work, you may have a low battery voltage or a defect.

To configure a Suzuki Engine Interface:
1. Press MENU, use the UP and DOWN keys to select SYSTEM SETUP and
press ENTER.
2. Highlight BUS DEVICES and press ENTER. The Bus Devices list will
appear.
3. Select UNCFG ENG INT and press ENTER. The following message will
appear: Press Enter to Configure Eng Intrfc.
4. Press ENTER. The following list of Suzuki engine models will appear:
DF40, DF50, DF60, DF70, DF90/115, DF140, DF150, DF175,
DF200/225, DF250 and DF300.
5. Select your engine model from the list and press ENTER. The Select
Engine menu will appear with up to three options (Port, Center and
Starboard), depending on your engine-tank configuration. If you chose
a single engine configuration during Boat Setup, you will be taken back
to the main display.
6. Highlight the engine connected to your engine interface and press
ENTER. If, for example, you select the Port, the following message will
appear: Press ENTER to change to Port Engine.
7. Press ENTER. You will be taken back to the main display.

I tried that and it still reverted back to DF40 after turning power off. Question: I have a 15' extension between the the end of EP20 and the T, could this have anything to do with it???

I had the same problem. When you configure your engine and location and such you have to do them one at a time and completely leave the setup screen and go back to the menu each time. If you try to set the engine type, location and everything at once it won't remember it. Hope this helps.
