HI All

  Excuse my ignorance on this question but this is my First  Big cabin boat..

I have 2 battery set up.

One battery  starts Both Engines.and I have interior power, Lights, fridge etc. When I switch it all on..

I connect the other battery and I don't know what its purpose is????  I didn't check under the step, PO told me look there for switches?

Is that for the Generator??   I'm dry docked and trying to learn everything before the season,and I get to my slip and look like a dope!!!!  

Thanks in Advance..

Rob

I am not familiar with the 338, but have been around many twin screw boats. It is my experience that you should have a separate battery bank for starting each engine. Your 12 volt house system should run off one of these banks. There may also be a crossover switch which allows you to tie the batteries together and start both engines in the event that one goes dead. The normal position for this switch is off. I would guess that you have one of these and it was left on. The generator should have it's own battery. 

My 382 has 3 starting batts, 1 for the genny and 1 for each engine. The crossover switch is mounted on the bulkhead behind the starboard engine. House batts are separate.

I see the 2 Battery switches, Ill try the 1 and 2 position and Both tomorrow, see what happens..

Thanks
