I switch the power off, on the switch board I get nothing. so I have 230 going in and only 35 coming out, but here is where is gets tricky, I put the multi reader in the saloon power points, it reads 110. The shore power is wired directly into this transformer. Its melting my brain. Cheers
your outlets are probably running off an inverter. the inverter is not going to allow it to pass bad 35v power so it engages the inverter.

Calm down, the fuses are inside the isolation transformer

This is the front. Maybe I am losing it since I had a 3 metre python come into my cabin at 3 in the morning, but I can't get those 16 amp fuses offClick image for larger version

Make a picture of where they meet the circuit board. There should be male blade connectors on the pcb just like for the jumpers you have there. The fuses should have the female just like those crimped onto the jumpers.

I do not know if Victron ever soldered these fuses onto the boards but cant imagine it... try to wiggle up and down a bit, then side to side. These connectors can be really stuck sometimes but it would not be a good day if you break the circuit board trace.
