Use a minimum of 8 gauge or heavier tinned wire between the battery and receptacle with a 30 amp resettable breaker or 50 amp slow blow fuse on the positive side as close to the battery as possible. A Hi-Amp Buss swing arm breaker with a manual trip push button is available from you local marine store or from Lindgren-Pitman. The red wire is the positive, the black is the negative.

PLEASE NOTE: Do NOT shorten the length of the reels cord – it will void the warranty.
The reel will work with a standard lead acid marine duty deep cycle battery. To ensure you do not deplete the battery used to start your boat, the S-1200 should be powered from a separate accessory battery that can be switched via a battery switch.
Minimum Wire Sizes from Battery to Outlet:
0 to 10 feet - 8 AWG
10 to 20 feet - 6 AWG
For runs greater than 20 feet please contact customer service to discuss your options.
