Great information. Who do you recommend to get the magnetic switches from?

Hi,

A bit late but I got my switches from engel as well.
Please use a good strong magnet to be able to penetrate the Hull, engel sells them also

Regards,

Jan,

I have a question. I am not 100% happy the location of the RX in the Tech Rack. It is at the forward most end of the tech rack and the space is quite limited. It is also difficult getting all 8 leads plugged into the end of the RX.

I found a better spot. One of the spacers for the for ballast tank mounting has a very nicely sized opening. It is where the spacer that has the VIIC symbol carved in it. The only problem that I see is that the RX will be just above the Ballast Tank motor. Engel claims that the motors on the ballast tanks are suppressed.

Should I worry about interference from the ballast tank motor? The new RX location quite handy and will significantly shorten a lot of the wiring. I have no problem making/shortening new leads, I just want to make sure that I am not creating a problem for myself.

Any comments either way would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Iran

Hi Iran,

Please leave it here because you have a strong point.
The receiver location Engel want us to use is indeed very limited in space.
Your suggestion sound ok but I really do not know if the electrical motors will cause problems, they are indeed suppressed but I dont know how it will work.

Again a trial and error case with this Engel Kit.

Jan,
