    And drill the hole to one side so the wires don't have to make a hard 90 to connect them.

    I got the boxes and have started on putting the pvc plugs in and ,while i thank everyone for the answers, My question has yet to been answered.
    Where does the 2 pole trailer plug need to be placed? I've seen pictures where it is right under the bilge. Could I connect my charger there and it charge the batteries? Would the flasher effect charging or vice versa?
    Once again thanks for the help

    I never used the 2 pole trailer plug, just a flasher.

    I tried the 552 flasher wired to positive side of Battery (motor - flasher - positive terminal).
    The flasher stopped working before I could get back in the blind.
    Tried it later and it still wouldn't work. so I just ran it without the flasher which made a nice duck butt fountain, but little ripple.
    Any suggestions on whether I just happened to get a bad flasher or maybe I should try a different flasher?
    With only a few weeks of the season left I didn't want to wait for a pulse timer component.

    I made 2 pulsars and used an on/off timer off ebay to cycle the pulses and save on battery time. It works well and can be custom programmed. The one I got
    I know this doesn't help with your short time frame, but might be a good off season addition.
