  1. Latest update, I located all the wires and connectors from all the accessory switches and I connected my amp and all works great. I wired it into the same accessory switch that powers up the radio and gps. That switch had spare wires in the loom to add other accerories. The problem that I ran into was that whoever make the wiring looms for Bennington screwed up. There is a 4 way flat weather pack connector that's wired wrong (the wire don't line up when connected). Thankfully, I have the proper tools (Guys, I did this for a living) to take the connector apart and move the wires to their proper position in the connector so they line up. Then all the accessory switch will power up. I'll then move the wires to a different switch so I can power up the amp independently from the main accessory switch. I know the pic is blurry, but maybe you'll see what I'm talking about.
  2. Semper Thanks I Just looked at that schematics and it covers some of the helm, but the GPS accessary switchs aren't shown. I may have to contact Bennington for a better view.
  3. Does anyone have scematics for a newer G series? Everything that I see posted says "Excluding G Series". Thanks
  4. My dealer just told me how "They" run the wiring and to pull 12v off the circuit breaker and that there are several unused grounds to attach to under the helm. I'm going to take another look at it this weekend. I'll keep you posted.
  5. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B000N5UW8M/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 PYLE PLMRA120 240-Watt 2-Channel Waterproof Marine/Car Amplifier
  6. It didn't work for me. My tubes look bad after 1 season. My boat sat in the water only 2 months before our lift that we ordered was installed.
  7. The manual states 5 amp draw. 12v input
  8. The amp I'm installing doesn't call for high amperage. I can't find any other power supply without splicing wires which I don't want to do. My amp calls for 1 power supply + ground and a separate switched wire to power up when the stereo powers on. Not seeing any other place to pull power from I was going to use the switches. Please tell me where to get the power supply under the helm without pulling wires from the battery.
  9. All of my switches and accessory switches have breakers. That's what these switches are used for. Adding lights, etc.. Anything that you want switched. Each accessory switch has a 12v power lead and a ground coming off of them for add ons!
  10. I want to use the switch for battery power to my amp since there is no bus bar or any other place to get power from under the helm. (I'm not splicing wires if I don't have to). The battery switch has 2 male spade terminaled wire (red and black) but there isn't any power to them. I have 3 switches in the dash not being used.
  11. I have a 2250 with the "GPS Accessory switches. 3 switches on the rt side of the dash GPS. I'm wiring in a amp for the stereo and I want to use one of these switches. I have no power on any of the switches. Does anyone know how to get the power to the switch panel? I'm calling my dealer Monday. Thanks
  12. When I'm idling, all I hear is the pee stream! When I'm running at WOT with the bimini closed I hear nothing but wind. When we have the bimini open I do hear very little out of the engine because of the because the any noise is reflected down from the bimini.
  13. Steve21slx, Brookville lake has been crowded because of the river being high. It was about 3ft up this past Saturday and Sunday and the wind was creating 1 to 2ft whitecaps. The water temp is about 78, so come on up and enjoy. Hope to see you. We keep our boat at Kents Marine.
  14. No, I didn't see any stickers on our boat and we pulled it from the factory to our dealer. But I could have missed them. I don't think it was applied at the factory (even though we paid for it) because of the way my tubes stained and now look. I have sent pictures to Sharkhide and we'll see what they say!!
  15. Search for the boat cover removal and install video that someone posted. Works like a champ. It made it a lot easier than what I was doing.
