thats my guess too, but the only load that big is the windlass.
i cant think of anything else that zaps that much power.

Re: 1 month sitrep

Scoob...in the second pic, is that an exposed corroded cable terminal without insulation, right in the open? Is this boat a WW II vintage?

I feel a bit of your pain. Here's a "before and midway through" set of pics from my battery project... Since the last pic I've cleaned it up a bit more and added the battery monitor.

It does get better, I promise. But do take time to label everything. It makes it somehow seem less scary...

Re: 1 month sitrep

so there was nearly a fire last night. well there could have been i guess.

i went to fire up the AC when i came in. and as i flipped the breaker i saw sparks behind the panel. yikes.
so i said to myself, this wiring must be totally shot. i was really expecting to see cloth covered wire or some such thing.



the wires on the transfer switch were lose, i dont know why. now it is fine. looks like the wires were redone at some point, well the AC anyhow. but very clean!
