Should I replace this setup?

This is the A/C set up in the boat I recently bought. The household outlet box looks hinky to me. Charger is plugged into it.

How would you change it up?

Thanks in advance.

Using house type circuit breakers and boxes was not that uncommon in the 70s.

Re: Should I replace this setup?

Is that triplex cord going from the breaker box to the outlet stranded marine grade conductor or Home Depot solid core copper wiring ?

I don't see a galvanic isolator.

Is that an inverter on the far side of the breaker box ?

I'll look at it today to confirm.

Noted. I'll poke around. Some things are mounted oddly on this boat.

It's a ProMariner battery charger
