Re: Twin 360's props

Not trying to beat a dead horse... But... Used props are proving difficult, if not impossible, to find in my area. To recap.... Current props....17x19 (see signature for boat) I know those props are just plain NOT right for our boat. I am going to pull the trigger and buy a pair of Michigan Wheel pr...

Re: Shakespeare VHF/AM/FM Band separator

Well I guess I'll be getting some am/fm antennas then.
Any thoughts on mounting them in very close proximity to the VHF antennas?
By very close proximity I mean that I have one ratchet mount that is probably less tha a foot from the VHF mount.

Re: Shakespeare VHF/AM/FM Band separator

We are on the Ohio River and typically don't go more than 20 miles or so up river of Louisville. I have read some stuff about potential damage to stereo head units..but most of those posts were several years old. We also mainly listen to the iPod but is would be nice to listen the radio at times.

Re: port engine turns over, but won't start

I will be following this thread as I had a similar issue last season.
I am kinda grasping at straws here but...are either of the red breaker buttons tripped on that motor?
Did you replace the Ballast resistor and the ECU?

I have not tried to contact them lately, so I cannot speak to whether or not they are returning phone calls.
I actually wanted to download and save the spec sheets on the site regarding props and boat/engine performance.

Re: Rocker Switches

newendeavor,
Man, that is a tough little switch to find.
All of the usual suspects, Mouser, DigiKey etc... don't seem to have it, as I am sure you discovered as well.
I did not notice an IP rating but the drawing does indicate a rubber gasket.

Re: Rocker Switches

Do you have a picture?
Is it just a DPDT rocker with an led for each position or is there text that is lit at each position?
