    Ski tow clearance

    Hello, I bought a lilly pad for the kids to play on when we're out. I plan on strapping it to the swim platform when not in use. The issue I foresee is it blocking the ski tow hook. The fix in my mind is just to hook the ski rope to a cleat on the corners of the boat. In our old boat we used to ski from the cleats all the time. Is this a good option, or should we only ski from the ski tow?

    We took it out Saturday morning and there are no beeps! The switch I replaced was visibly fried, so I had a good feeling the new one would work. What a relief! Hopefully we have a long summer of boat without issues. I appreciate all the input from the forum.

    Here it is installed. Again, tiny picture. The button depresses when the motor is put into gear.

    Here's a picture comparing the old vs the new switches. It looks like the old one melted.

    Here's the latest: With the laptop plugged in, the error code resulted in a bad Gear Indication Switch. The switch had melted, so we checked over heating codes but nothing showed up. $38 later on Amazon and I have a new part ordered. I'm really hoping this does the trick. My friend cleared the codes, so next trip on the water my boat will have a clean slate. I'll keep you updated.

    Come to think of it the sequence of beeps did change. It was two beeps every minute at 3200rpm, now it’s only one beep every minute at the same rpm’s.

    We got the new water pressure sensor put on, and also the new wheel and rotor for the distributor cap. Nothing changed. It still beeps at around 33 mph/3200 rpm. My friend is bringing over the laptop this week, so we'll see what error codes it spits out. I'll let everyone know how this ends up.

    Add a battery: Update 3/11/19

    I went ahead and got a new cable. I had to size up to a 1/0 cable because the audio store that made it for me didn't have 2/0. Oh well, no worries about it now.

    I guess the load would be max 72 amps. I have a 75 amp fuse on the cable. It serves as the cable between the positive terminal on my start battery and the ACR. Now I'm worried...

    Add a battery: Update 3/11/19

    I finished the Add A Battery kit installation in my boat this weekend. I added an Interstate 27 house battery. There are a couple more battery cables required to make the installation to the ACR. The only thing I would do differently is not mess with a switch from the ACR ground to the negative bus. Also, I ran out of 2 awg positive terminal battery cable and had to run to O'Reilly's and pick up a 4 awg battery cable. I'm assuming that won't be a big deal since it only runs about 22 inches. I'm super happy I stuck with it and completed the project. I hooked up my battery tender to my starting battery and the ACR light came on indicating is was sensing a charge, and sending that charge to the house battery. Pretty slick charging 2 batteries with one charger! I wish I could add the full size picture. 20 kb is not a lot to work with.

    I'm wondering if there would be an issue with running an AGM battery in parallel with and regular marine Interstate battery?

    Sweet. My starting battery is an Interstate Marine, and I have a Costco membership.

    Last question: Can someone recommend a deep cycle battery that I can use as my house battery?

    Faulty? Maybe. I still haven't heard from anyone who utilizes the Add-A-Battery kit that reports problems with the functionality.
