Old wiring

Postby shade2u2 » Sat Jul 07, 2018 6:28 pm

I’m reconnecting my flybridge and have the original spotlight wiring between both helms. Is there any reason that I shouldn’t just disconnect and pull this old obsolete wiring out? I have a new wireless spotlight that just needs power for the bulb.

If it is not being used, pull it out. But before you pull the last wire, use it to pull a piece of heavy string or light parachord to use as a fish line in the future. Leave at least a foot at each end.

Ill second pulling it out. Eliminates confusion in the future when solving problems.

thank you
I will have to check the wiring for the new light. The PO wired for the new spot light and I don’t know how he tied it into the breaker switches.
