because the original 220v wiring was used in the 120V conversion; the wire was undersized and of course the color codes were wrong. It was a dangerous mess. He now has a modern 120V system with isolation transformer and a new breaker panel.
Thanks Greg and others. I am in NZ, so we use 240V and the plug style is different to both UK and USA.
I have already removed the 110 inverter
, and plan on installing a Victron in the near future, but so that we are compliant with local laws will have a electrician do the AC side of things.
The blanking plugs were not so much about making the plugs safe, but more to do with actually covering the hole if I removed the plugs all together.
