This video will show the complete process from beginning to end from finding the SDS main connector, making a wire extension, to connecting the NMEA 2000 network on my boat. This process should be very similar no matter which boat you have.
Special thanks to Monnlighter 475 for his knowledge and instructions to make this network possible.
Before attempting this install, refer to his instruction for special requirements; here’s the link :
You can save some money by making your own SDS wire harness, which is very easy to do, but you will need to read Moonlighter’s instructions to find the parts required to do so.
***In my video I mention “I am not making the SDS wire harness”. What I meant to say is I am not making the SDS plugs.
