wiring a new lund boat


Guest

Question

We had a mishap with our boat - I think my brother crossed the lines when he put a charge on the starting battery. The ground wire from the gas tank burned all of the plastic covering off and melted some of the other wires. We are getting the schematics on the boat for the rewiring, but need some pro inputs on what to watch out for. It is a new 2003 Lund Angler. Lund won't cover under the warranty.

Brrrr, I am glad nothing happened, a short on fuel tank is not something to take lightly..... If you need a wiring harness, I have 1 from I believe a Lund Pro-V, and some others from other mfg.
It will be a little mess to replace it, but if you want it make me any offer, I'll be glad to help.

Check with the dealer, maybe it's covered under warranty. I can't see how putting the charger on wrong could do that much damage.

I agree with Chris. That sounds like too much damage for what you said happen. And, you think or know for sure he hooed it up backwards? I'd go to the another dealer.

In the past, I had it explained to me that the polarity can be reversed in a battery in a way that made complete sense from a person who knows the field .. I am not that person, nor would I make an attempt to explain how it works.

From the sounds of the outcome, it sounds to me exactly what happens when a main ground comes in contact with a hot(positive) wire. With direct Positive current to the main ground, everything grounded will short out and have a melt down.... enough heat can be generated to melt into other wires, harnesses.. or anything not capable of withstanding extreme heat.

It should not be that difficult to replace most of the wiring in that boat, although it will be time consuming. The only part that will likely prove difficult will be the motor.. hopefully it did not cause any damage other than the wiring. Your electronics are very sensitive, and only fused on the hot wire .. so the outcome could be anything.

If your boat is insured, it should be covered. It is possible warranty could cover it.

Good Luck

Looked it over and took things apart this weekend. Not as bad as I thought - Only the ground wire to the gas tank and one other wire and the livewell line. Motor and harness wasn't touched - yeahhh. Lund wouldn't cover it at all because they say it isn't their fault. Hope to get it into the water by Wednesday so we can test. We got lucky this time - thanks for the posts.

      It is strange that the developers did not think of such a nuance. In any case, you need to place an ad on the labor exchange, where you will find employees for the company and they will work with you, only you will need to conduct a preliminary interview

      Creating an application for such a hotel would be the best option. Place your ad on the job exchange on the Internet, I know a few of these, then you can find developers for yourself and the work will go much easier

      You won’t have to search for a long time, rather you will need to choose from the options offered. Look on the Internet for all the available options, such developers usually have their own sites that have all the information you need

      I am sure that if you search in the google search engine you will find a company that is dedicated to that, but to be honest I have not much idea, I never planted the idea of something like that, from my ignorance it is very complicated, but maybe someone who have more notion of it can guide you and can even recommend a company with a good reputation that is dedicated exclusively to it, good luck with all that

      Haven't really targeted geese, think we've got 3 Ross geese a blue goose and one Canada goose. We focus more on ducks, especially when we can get them in the field. Greater and lesser Canada geese around but they are spread out tons of feeds but no large feeds

      Finally got the choirs done. Roofed a shed and built a woodshed. Most done by myself. Now's time to go fishing before the deer season.  Found some crappies tonight, caught 11, missed at least that many. West end. Skunked again, how'd you do, saw you heading out?

      The three on top of the pile are geese. Smurfy. 😉   +1 on the decent shooting!  Thanks for the pics.  This was one post that got me to log back in to spam central.   Going dark again….
