Project List for 2022 - 360EC

pcmpetepcmpete SaltyPeteMarine dot comMember Posts: 69
Decided to document this year’s project list for my 2010 360EC.
Current Setup:
Twin 377s with Bravo IIIs
Axius with Skyhook 

Project List:
1.
Change all four batteries to AGM group 31, currently Group 27 Flooded Lead Acid.
I am getting random errors on my vesselview and have read that it is recommended AGMs for the DTS/Axius system.

2.
Change out the O.E.M. Battery isolator.
I am thinking of TWO Victron isolators with very little voltage drop.  I know people on this forum use the ProMariner and some have had issues.

3.
Add a NMEA2000 wiring system.
Include a Vesselview link.
Connect up to existing Fusion Radio (with NMEA2000)

4.
Upgrade my Lowrance HDS 8 Gen 2 to Simrad GO12

5.
Replace my Vesselview 1.5 with 1 or 2 Simrad GO9s

6.
Replace ALL cockpit lights with tri-color leds

7.
Upgrade to Hill Marine 4 x 4 props.
I currently have 4 x 3 21pitch

8.
Replace the Lenco Trim Switch
with either the newer all-in-one switch or the Bennett Autotab Pro

Hopefully by documenting my projects I will get help and feedback from this forum along the way.
I plan of updating and adding items as I go.

First I will split the projects in to Must DO and Want to do. :)

    I did all those things on my 350 - all great moves! The 4x4s were the best bang for around 3 boat bucks. 

    No issues with my ProMariner stuff.

    They're "Motomaster" brand - probably branded something else in the US.

    Most Motomaster are made by Johnson Controls who also do the Canadian AC Delco and a bunch of other branded batteries I believe.

    Never understood how battery isolators go bad. Need to do some research…

    I am getting my batteries locally and I believe they are made by Johnson Controls. Group 31 AGM with MCA1050 for $235 each

    These got installed today.  Two house and port starting was easy.  But lifting the fourth one over the generator outlet for the starboard starting was NOT Fun.  
    I also got the chance to clean the relays connections  that are normally hidden by the port starting battery.

    Yes lifting that starboard battery SUCKS!

    Tomorrow’s project is to replace the non working Trim tab switch with this upgraded all in one unit.

    You should reseal that port side U bolt. Looks like a leaker.

    pcmpete, take a look at your pic at time 7:52 showing the two battery switches.  It looks like you might have a problem with your D bolt (pretty sure that's what it is) to the right of the switches.  I suggest you check the area with a moisture meter or better yet, remove it and check the holes.  Good luck.

    Thanks.  I will get this sorted at the next haul out.
