The compass must be properly calibrated after all per-
sonal equipment is installed including all electronics (ra-
dio, depth sounder, etc.). DO NOT rely on the compass
performed. The boat has a factory installed compass,
packet. Most areas have local companies that special-
ize in compass adjustment. If unsure of the proper com-
pensation techniques, consider having the adjustment
done professionally to ensure accuracy and confidence
in the compass.
During use, keep all extraneous metal objects
away from the compass. The close proximity of
metal objects (e.g., beverage cans) can cause
O. Instrument Maintenance
Electrical protection for instruments and ignition circuitry
is provided by fuses. The fuse block is located under-
neath the starboard dash on certain Sundowner™ mod-
els or on the starboard side, below the throttle control,
near the floor on other models.
Periodically, spray the ignition switch with a contact
cleaner. The ignition switch and all instruments, con-
trols, etc. should be protected from the weather when
not in use. Four Winns offers appropriate weather cov-
ers for each model. Excessive exposure can lead to
gauge and ignition switch difficulties.
DO NOT use a product such as WD-40 as a
contact cleaner. Be sure to read the label be-
fore using any product
Electronic gauges are affected by static electricity that
builds-up on the glass face. Periodic washing on the
gauge face with warm water and mild liquid detergent
will help eliminate the static electricity problem and im-
prove gauge accuracy.
