I understand that in a perfect world the 110 and 12 volt panels
are located at some remove from each other. I believe this is to prevent idiots from wiring
110 volt lines into 12 volt breakers/fuses/circuits.
In the world I am living in today I have a combined panel from a Catalina 30
that has the 110 on the left, the battery
switches in the enter and the 12 volt on the right.
The panel is the perfect size to fit in a location that is easy to see and accessible without using up real estate that might be more profitably used for other purposes.
How relevant is this issue? Are there reasons other than rampant stupidity for separating them? Experience anyone?
Also will I ruin the performance irreparably if I locate the batteries
12 feet away from the panel?
