So I'm going to be installing perfect pass in my boat pretty soon and was wondering if anybody out there that has done this themselves had some tips. How you ran the wires under the floor, any little tricks or tips you figured out.
I don't have any doubt that I can do it I just thought I'd try to draw some knowledge from the vast wakeworld community and learn from others mistakes if they made any.

its reeally pretty easy. Measure 3/4 times before you drill the hole. Hardest part for me was hooking up under the dash.

make sure the grub screw on the servo knob is tightened, my wasnt and kept falling off.

dont ziptie the cable.

well, I insist on soldering all the connections. And I had to figure out the tach, which was different on my boat than others. and there was not a lot of room to work.

Drilling the hole was easy. I did it while the boat was on my lift. i.e., if I had messed up, im was SCREWED :-)

I installed PP on the i/o that I used to own.

Search around for lots of tips about drilling the hull, like running the saw in reverse, taping over the area, drillin a pilot hole from the inside out first, etc.


Regarding your question about running the wires,
I ran wiring along/under the gunnel. I zip-tied it to some of the other wiring in there.

Good luck.
