To assist you, we have listed the descriptions of
individual switches, receptacles and their uses:
The positive and negative studs incorporated
into the battery switch panel are intended to
raise the engine hatch when properly attached
to an external 12 volt source (12 volt battery).
Once properly attached to the 12 volt source
use the engine hatch switch at the helm to
raise the engine hatch. These studs are not
designed for jump-starting a dead battery.
To prevent electrical problems, use only
replacement fuses or breakers that are of
equal rating to the originals.
Accessories - Additional 12 volt equipment may be
added to the boat by the using the accessory switch-
es. Depending on the model, certain accessories may
be wired directly to the fuse block below the dash or
may be wired to a circuit breaker in the AC/DC cabin
panel. For additional information on adding accesso-
ries, refer to Section H-5B.
H - 3 BATTERY CHARGER
The battery charger is standard on the 338 Vista
models and is located in engine compartment. The
batteries will be charged by the battery charger when
the boat is connected to dockside power and the AC
circuit breakers and BATTERY CHARGER circuit
breaker are “ON”. If a generator is available and
operating, it too will allow the batteries to be charged
by the battery charger.
Volt DC Receptacle - Permits the use of additional
volt equipment such as a cell phone. Using the
appropriate adaptor, the equipment draws power from
the boat’s batteries.
Aft Bilge Pump - The BILGE PUMP switch is used
to manually activate the bilge pump in the engine
compartment. The bilge pump is used to remove
water from the bilge (bottom of the hull) area of the
boat by pumping that water overboard. The aft bilge
pump is equipped with an automatic bilge switch and
will operate whenever bilge water rises to a level that
will cause the ﬂoat to move upward.
Additional information on the battery charger can be
found in Section H-8B - 120 Volt AC Equipment in this
manual and refer to the manufacturer’s literature
included with the owner’s packet.
H - 4 VOLTMETER
Dual gauges with voltmeters are installed in the dash
panel to monitor the condition of the engine battery(s).
When the voltage is checked during engine operation,
the voltage of the respective battery will be indicated
on the respective voltmeter. It should be noted that
located on the 12V DC system side of the AC/DC
cabin panel is a voltmeter which monitors the “SHIPS
SYSTEMS” battery. Additional information on voltme-
ters may be found in the engine owner’s manual.
This automatic bilge pump is active even if the battery
selector switch is in the “OFF” position. The automatic
bilge pump circuitry is connected directly to the
batteries. When leaving your boat unattended for an
extended period, check the charge on the battery(s)
periodically. Also check the water level in the bilge
and make sure the ﬂoat switch is functional.
If the automatic bilge pump must be disabled, discon-
nect the wiring plug near the bilge pump.
H - 5 12 VOLT ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT
A. Helm Equipment
Blower - The BLOWER switch is used to activate the
bilge blower. Pressing the switch to the “ON” position,
activates the electric bilge blowers, changing the air in
the engine compartment that may contain gas vapors.
Ignitions are protected by circuit breakers on the 338
Vista® model. Equipment on the helm is protected by
either circuit breakers in the helm or in the cabin’s AC/
Electrical Systems - Section H
