a 'naked' shunt

Hi there! this weekend I finally double checked an old electrical drawing of the boat. During that exercise I 'discovered' a 'naked' shunt on the positive side, between alternator and the combiner. It had yellow-green wires attached to it that were going to nowhere. Can I simply remove the shunt? My install has an external xantrex regulator and a Link 2000 with a shunt on the (-) side. Any input is appreciated! Thnx, Arjan

Yes you can remove it as long as all the other wires are not connected to anything. If you have a digital voltmeter you might leave it in as a way to check alternator output. Just my two cents, Mike.

And I thought someone had opened a thread on Proa sailing, mind you I have never attempted a shunt without clothes on.
