Doug, I see you use the miracle type switch. Make sure they don't switch the negative and positive. I have had many customers with these fail. Modified they are fine

negative wires should never be switched. Instead the double throw switch should switch the red wire twice. Makes the switch 10,000 times more reliable. Negative never switches well because no spark during contact. Positive should use both sides of the double throw switch; that way both have to fail at the same time to fail. If negative and positive is switched if one fails to contact that switch fails.
I have had a couple customers loose brand new planes because of these switches. (not sold by me because I know better).

Check it out doug.

I have also had two people have ignition go on and off at random because of switches that switch both positive and negative.
