First off it is 50amp/220 volt, Yes you are very right that when the boat was new the wiring was a joke but it did have a breaker box (if you want to call it that) when I first got the boat I took all that junk out and ran new wire and put in a Blue Sea 30 amp panel so all the wiring is good now just over grew the 30amp limit when I got married.
You may have seen me talk about her hair dryer in other post due to it is the biggest blame to my electrical problems, she now has a new one because the first went into the river some how.
It is just so hard for me to understand why/how someone would turn every light on in a house/boat start the oven
and then go dry your hair, then come to me and say " I just don't know why it all went out" or Have the heat/A/C on but doors/windows open.
I have tried to tell her not only dose it blow a breaker but it could start a fire. But she will do the same time after time.
Ok I'm sorry for venting lol
Like I said above my electrical needs are going to drop alot very soon, I am adding 600watts of solar
and 400 watts wind
with a house bank of 800AH+ so I plan to charge the batteries off that run the Engal, change the computer system I have now (desktop) to a laptop
dump the network, I have to admit the computer/network load I am to blame for. I will also be shaving her head
while asleep so this maybe my last post lol.
I have hopes that after all is said and done buy moving loads and removing some toys I can get back below the 30amp as before.
