Thanks all. Some great info. Wingnut - thats exacty what I was doing. I had them load tested and turns out battery #1 was bad and I got it replaced. Hopefully that solves all the electrical gremlins as well as all seems good now with the guages, will really test it this weekend out on the water.
I went from a Four Winns 21 foot to the 264 Xtreme. Love it. It certainly is different. I looked at the 24s, but just wanted that extra bit of space. I don't tow anymore either so with a slip at the marina the 26 made great sense. I also feel like the 26 is a perfect balance of spry on the water, but also a boat I will not outgrow anytime soon. I almost went 28, but happy to stay at 26.
Hello all. Long time boat owner, but new to brand and first time buying a new boat. I just got a 264 Xtreme with all the bells and whistles. Great boat. Almost 7 hours now on her. A few questions: Dual battery usage - what is your best practice here. My #1 battery seems to always go dead on the water. I read the manual and ran on #1, partied on #2 and then flip back to #1 and it won't start the boat. What am I missing? #1 though for some reason always starts the boat when I first take her out. Garmin - Is this supposed to be hooked up to the engine for information - when I go to that page it
