96 STS 750 Where will I find 12v Regulated output?
Electrical engineering is my strong point over mechanical so I am trying to add a few 12 volt powered luxuries to my ski.
I want to use power from the generator after it passes through the voltage regulator. So where can I find 12 volts on my ski without using the battery?
Would any red and black wires leaving the control box be 12V?
Would the fuel gauge (which is broken on my ski) have a 12V supply I could steal?

Add one heavy lead to the hot post on the starter and run it to a junction box. Mount it anywhere you like and run your accessories off that. The charging system is just that, a CHARGING system. The battery is what should run everything.

keep in mind that the alternator output of that ski isn't going to support a whole lot of accessories and still be able to maintain a battery charge. 2nd battery and a charging/isolator needed..walk in the park for you I would guess.
The output of the rectifier regulator isn't going to be the cleanest DC voltage you've ever seen.. You might be able to fit a 30ah 4-tec battery in there if it mounts under the hood. Don't recall if it is a hood or next to the electrical box mounting.

Would it not need to be the hot side of the starter solenoid instead of the hot side of the starter?
