Switching active stations.

Postby David M. » January 4th, 2019, 2:48 pm

I have Volvo Penta shifters on my Carver and have yet to discover if there is a way to switch from one helm to another without shutting down the engines. Anyone familiar with these controls that can explain the process.

Hi David, I'm waiting to see if someone chimes in on your question. I'd like to know myself. I never use the bridge helm so I've never learned. I thought you had to come to a stop and idle in neutral to change active stations? Do your motors shut down or just come down to an idle? Dave.

Dave, after more research I figured out how to change active stations. Place the active station in neutral and hold the active station button for 3+ seconds. This disables that station. Turn the keys to the on position on the other station and press the active station button. This allow you to transfer stations without shutting down the engines.
