Riva SCOM draining battery....
Went to winterize my 300 the other day and found that it had a dead battery. It dawned on me that the only power drain could be my Riva SCOM, as it's directly hooked to the battery. Two questions for the board.....Has any one hooked it up to a ignition only hot wire instead of directly to the battery? The other question is since its constantly feeding power to the ECU will there be any long term issues with the reliability of the ECU? Looking for input.......Steve

I never noticed this since I always plug in the ski to the maintenance charger when I go to sea. I will definately change the power source for mine.

remove inspection cover
remove ECU mount , they just pull out of the white plastic liner
I used the BLACK connector for the ground ........ the big thick BLACK wire next to he blue as you can see
grey connector for the 12 ignition switch power ...... RED/WHITE strip on the outter edge of the plug.
the following pictures will help clarify plug & wire position
if you are changing from a battery supply style you can leave the ground at battery if you like, as you only need to move the 12v positive to the new location if you are worried about drain .
Hope it helps

Cool! I was wondering which wire was the ignition one for my future boost gauge :O
