Has anyone installed the Sea Doo 12-volt electrical outlet? Do you need to take the top of the Spark off? I'd love to be able to get a hold of the installation instructions before I buy the outlet. Thanks!

To me it seems that the top needs to come off for the job, although I'm not using Seadoo parts myself. It is probably possible to have the wires inside the hull through the existing cabling holes, but seems like waste of time trying to fish them and do the connections through the small space there as the top of the Spark is easy to remove and allows a clean & neat installation.

I bought exactly similar 12V power outlet from a marine parts dealer like I bought the switches for pilge pump and running lights and a fuse box for these added electrics. I already put the power outlet & switches in place in the bottom of the glove compartment, but wiring is waiting for the boring autumn evenings that I can do everything at one go incl. other seasonal maintenance. It's like 2hrs job to do & parts 60€ for everything and I'll have a high-tech Spark :)

Thanks for the feedback.

I guess if you buy the Sea Doo part, it comes with some sort of wiring harness that you must have to plug in somewhere near the access panel.

Is there a set place in the little compartment (which I think just pops out) near the display panel that the 12 volt outlet is supposed to go? Do you have a picture (before I break out the drill)?

Thanks again!

I dont see a reason why you would need the actual sea-doo one. The plug that they have is so you can quickly disconnect the 12v outlet when you take the top off instead of disconnecting the whole thing from the batt.

A picture of the outlet installed. Used a 1 1/8" hole saw. Was perfect.
Where did you pick yours up at saw?

How are you sealing these holes for this and your speaker to keep from water entering/leaving?

Is this mainly to keep your phone charged while playing music?

Your making me want to spend money! :laugh:

Oh, so then you bought a marine 12-volt part somewhere else. Did it come with wires? Did you just run one wire to each side of the battery?

I guess that's what I've been wondering all this time, why is Sea Doo charging $49 for it. I figured it must be "different" in some way. I tried to get the instructions from Sea Doo and then from my dealership (not in person) and struck out. At least in Sea Doo's case, I figured the instructions were probably in a .pdf somewhere, but they had no idea.

Thanks for the picture!

I purchased the kit from sea doo. I have a second kit that i will open up and post a picture of everything it comes with in a couple hours.
You dont have to seal anything up on this because it isnt located anywhere "dry". The front is in that flip cubby and the back is where the first-aid kit goes. Yes each wire just goes strait to the bat
