I just purchased a 2016 Z21 after selling my 2014 Z9. In the battery compartment it has a master shut off switch to totally kill the batteries during storage or charging. However it also has the number 1 on one side of the switch and the number 2 on the other then 2+1 on bottom. Nitro advertises that the 2+1 is in case starting battery dies it will "jump" it off from the other batteries. What i can't get an answer to is I have a 36 volt trolling motor with 3 batteries. Is this switch ok? Should I have it switched on the number 1 or 2 when I fish a full day? The power And motor seemto work on either but I'm afraid this switch was for a 24 volt system. Thanks for any advice!!!

Follow the wires to see with one is battery 1 and which one is battery 2. Choose you primary as the one that is your cranking battery, and leave the selector on that one (S/B 1). If you have a 'low' main battery, you can use 1+2 to 'jump start'. If it is totally dead you can use 2 in a pinch. The switch is only hooked into 12 volts from your 36 volt series for your TM, so it is not an issue.
