ok i have a puko switch and two batteries the boat is an 01 xstar. out of the boat there are two red wires ones probally for the starter and the other one i dont know what it is for. then you have the black wire and the stereo 25 amp wires where do they all need to go if i have disconnected all of them and need to wire to a puko selector switch. i have seen the diagram that puko offers but it only has one wire for the starter. I have two reds and dont know where they need to go. if anyone has any pictures or can describe how and where to hook all the wires that would be great.

You seperate the batteries on the 1 and 2 slot on the backside of the PERKO switch. The third is from the alternator to the connestion that says feed. Then run all of you stereo equipment to one of the batteries and the starter to the other battery.

The second red wire you mention prob. goes to the bus bar. The bus bar is where all your swithes and gauges are wired too.

You put the one red (+), the starter, to the common on the puko, the other red that goes to the bus can either go on the common also, or directly to your second batt. I would put it on the puko.
