  3. Greetings Gentlemen. This is my first post on the Garage. I have been intently reading this thread for some time now and I finally got around to building one and My God... It works! Great job JHart and jonthompson. I will be sending in a donation to the Garage soon. I have a question that maybe the Garage Gurus can assist. I used a simple SPDT switch to control the L/R Lencos. It works great. I wanted to geek out and use these LED push button switches, one for each side red and green. (see below) I wanted to press the button on the surf side and the LED would turn on. Here is the switch schematics.(see below) I set the program at -1 MPH to test the controller. When I connected the switches, the arduino controller works in reverse. I press the switch and the lenco retracts. I turn off the switch and the lenco extends. I connected Pin 4 and Pin 5 to the right side (NO) of each switch on the schematic. The negative obviously went to ground. On the left side (NO) I connected to 12V. The top was jumped to the right side to power the internal LED. What am I doing wrong? I'm thinking I'm sending 12v back into the arduino board. Do I need to install a diode? Can you guys help?
  4. @Slurpee That looks great! I'll have to post some pictures of my install too (the pictures in the writeup are from @Y-Naut-Ski's boat; formerly 21VLXSkiier) I unbolted the starboard 12" display mount and ran the CAT5 through the same space as the LVDS cable, then used velcro to hold it to the bottom of the 12" display. If my son's baseball game is rained out (in May!) I'll go get some pictures and post them...
  5. Great Project @mikeo! I totally copied you here on my '16 22 VLX. Finding a place to put it that was relatively accessible, always visible, but out of the way was a bit tricky in this help. If there had been a clever way to route the Cat5e I'd have stuck it right under the large display. It's a great fit. But there's no convenient place to bring the cable out from under the helm nearby. I like this though where it ended up.

  7. Thanks — haha - must be a helluva sub
  8. Earlier
  9. I put mine in the observer compartment. It is mounted on the walkway wall and I have a little slack. But if it was on the hull side I would have had to get the extension. I have fought ballast pump / blower noise issues in the past so figured if I can put the signal source that much closer I would. Doesn't help that my sub tends to beat things to death on the drivers side. It used to knock the chip loose on my old perfect pass.
  10. @cowwboy did you run the black box on the helm side, or in passenger compartment near the amps? If the later, did the 8' WS cable reach? (I know they sell an extension). I might just keep mine on helm side where 420 is now... I can't imagine losing signal quality right?

    I’m using wake logic system with lenco actuators. Any help on location would be great thanks

    Can you show a pic of Lenco actuators position. I’m mocking up a system on my 08 lsv right now . Thanks
  13. It's May.... time to get back on the water and get your boat upgraded for another season. To continue inspiring each other with upgrades and modifications, Wake Garage has brought back the free hat promotion.... add 3 projects to the Completed Projects Database and earn a free hat. For a limited time. Support the site that helps make your boat better. Click here for details
  14. Sorry, just now seeing this post. I used fiberglass and resin to level the floor. Then I used KiwiGrip to coat the surface.
  15. Thanks, Yes. The primary is a float switch and manual switch on dash. The new secondary is just an external float switch
  16. NICE! Not even water can take that Bu down now. You have a float witch in the mix on your primary as well??
  17. Not a big project --- but after having a few instances over the years where we ended up with a lot of water in the boat (don't ask), as well as after drilling more and more ballast ports to allow water in --- I had always wanted to add a second bilge pump to my boat as a safety net. Mine did not come with one. I did this project last summer. And if you're going to do it... might as well go big. I opened up a lot of space in the rear of the bilge when I redid the exhaust. So I bought a larger pump than hopefully I'll ever need, a Johnson 2200. My stock bilge pump is a 750 gph. I moved that one forward a little bit in the bilge, which made it lower and serves as the primary bilge pump, and then secured the big daddy Johnson 2200 in the rear corner... about the only place I could fit it. I mounted the floating switch so it will be the backup/OMG/secondary pump. The new pump comes with a 1 1/2 and 2" output ports. I used the 1 1/2" and bought matching PVC hose (same as our common ballast hose, but a little bigger). And then picked up a larger stainless port and brought it out the side of the boat... so it just sits in line with the ballast ports. Not a big project... but a little extra piece of mind / safety net. I filled up the bilge with water to test it and then powered the new pump.... it was cool to see how much volume could shoot out the side. Enlarged and beveled out the hole for the stainless thru-port with a Dremel. This is what the Johnson 2200 pump looks like. It's pretty large.
  18. The only downside I have is the direct sunlight viewing wash out. But other then that I love it. It could use to have better sound processing abilities (EQ / time delay). But that would only increase costs and most people don't need or want that kind of control. I have been talking to a buddy with a V-ride and I really want to try to modify his dash to do the same. I thought of trying to find a quad gauge like the one my boat uses to get rid of the three little gauges then build a fiberglass pod to get his speed control multi line box to the side or swap his boat to perfect pass and ditch the stock speedo for it. But he is not quite as adventurous as me,
  19. Hows the project coming along?

    Yeah Hayden is less busy and less choppy than Cda or Pend O'Reille.
  21. Thanks for the response. Only ever been to CdA and Pend Oreille. Hayden and Priest are both on the bucket list. Still wanting to tick off Dworschak too.

    Thanks! It's Hayden Lake, Idaho.
  23. Shoebox, Fantastic work man. Love everything about this project. Super clean electrical too. Thanks for the write up. Just out of curiosity, the trees and hill look like PNW or maybe even NorCal. Where are you located?? Your lake looks great!!

    Homemade Surf Tabs

    I kept the black GSA-style tabs. I got the plate and tubing at a local metals supplier.
  25. Which tab did you decide to stick with? and where did you buy your 3/16 aluminum plate, and square tubing? thanks
  26. @cowwboy have you had enough time with the MC1 yet to recommend? Strongly considering. Think I'd have the pass from wife too.... my stock original deck is glitchy, and she said straight up we aren't planning boating trips without a stereo. lol. Hardest part about the MC1 is where to put in on our generation of boats... yours is a cool option but I'm trying to consider a few places
  27. Looks factory and sounds better? Winning!! Nice work.
