    Comments about Bep Marine 701 Master Battery Switch:

    The switch is used to provide power from the batteries to the helm and resides with the battery switch behind a normally closed door. I am sure the original switch would have lasted another 10 years but a raccoon got in the boat, reached through a molded fishing rod holder, grabbed the #8 size red cable to the helm and pulled out about six feet of it through the rod holder opening and onto the deck. In the process of yanking on the cable, the raccoon broke the switch so had to replace it.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Ordered online and received the switch a week later
