    I have the wiring schematics from the owners manual. If you dont have, you can download for your model directly from the Sea Ray website under Owners Resources.

    I really like that idea of relocating the batteries and also, thank you for the tips on accessing the engines and components. It sounds like you had to do quite a bit of work to make the bilge user friendly though, and I am not sure I am that knowledgeable. I have rewired electrical systems before, however. Can you tell me how you handled the splitting out of the house and starting legs? I believe these both run to the battery solenoids in the main panel now, which would require pulling this wiring out of here and routing through charging relays, etc. Did you continue to keep everything wired through these electronic battery switches when you upgraded or use standard battery switches?
    I will also check out your blog.
    Thanks for all the information!

    I downloaded them from Sea Ray this evening. I will have to check my port side storage compartment midship for space. My bowthruster fuse block and main Perko switch is in there. I really want to do this to free up some space and feel the weight transfer is needed in this stern heavy boat. I agree with the AGM batteries and of course I have brand new SLA batteries that the previous owner just put in. I still need to figure how to incorporate isolation. This should be an interesting mod.

    As a followup, checked when on the boat this weekend. Fully retractec I have about 1 to 1.5 inches between the point of the anchor and the gel coat.

    Standard sea ray anchor that came with the boat.

    I recaulked both skylights, but still have damp carpet. I now think it may be caused when I fill the fresh water tank (seems to coincide with that event now that I'm paying attention). Any ideas where the fill hose runs? I know the water tank is in the center of the aft berth bench seat, but I don't know where the fill line or vent line runs.

    Just bought a 2001 340 and cant wait to get on it. Wondering if you guys know where I can get replacement filler cushions for the stern seating area. We are missing a few. Thanks for the help and I'm sure I will have some questions for you all.

    Make sure the "accessory" and "outlets" switches in the control panel are both on.

    I took out my cockpit ice maker and tried to salvage it but it is too far gone. So,... any sugestions as to what to fill the hole with? there is a ton of space back there and I would like to see how others have utilized this area after removing the icemaker. I also considered replacing it with a frig....what one to put in there???

    Could you please update your profile from a 2004 Four Winns and tell us exactly what year your 340 is? That will really help you get an answer. For example - there is no storage under an '03 to '08 340 salon sofa...

    Not sure what model you have, but mine is on the right hand side (facing dinette) of the base of the dinette. When you plug the hose in, the vaccuum comes on automatically as long as the outlet switch is on in the main panel.

    On my 340 (2006 model) there is an "outlet" in the storage area, that looks just like a standard electrical plug-in outlet, but it has a flap you lift, then you insert the hose and give it a turn (it will start as soon as this connection is made). I'm pretty sure all later model 340s have the same system. I hope you find it.
