Have 23' XLV with Speakers on tower, Instruction book tells me to be careful when playing music with boat off.

Is there a time limit I have before I drain battery's ?

I have my battery switch set to 1

There are ALOT of variables. If everything is stock then I would imagine you could get 1 or 2 hours of it without an issue.

If you are concerned, put your switch on 2 when parked. If this battery were to completely drain, then you can move it back to 1 to start the boat.

It all depends how your boat is wired. If its from the factory there should be no need to switch it to 2. All your stereo HU,Amps should be hooked up to batt 2, thus preventing any draining of batt 1. the selector decides which batt is to be charged by the alternator. If you have a VSR there is no need to worry

yes it was factory wired, the key can be turned into a backwards position I assume ACC ?

Do not want to have the boat not start

All you'd accessories should be able to be turned on with out a key even in the ignition. All my key does is start the engine
