Inverter and Aux DC

Published date: June 20, 2012
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

Under the aft setee seat, mounted on the wall I put a 500 watt inverter. I plugged a regular household extension cord into it and ran the end to under the table. We only use this AC to charge phones, Ipads, and laptops when on the hook. The aux panel is fused directly to the battery a/b switch. It is an unswitched 12 lug strip (6+, 6-) that supplies the (fused) inverter, a (fused) 12V socket under the setee, and the (fused) blower fan on the head. It also accepts the output from the solar panel controller to recharge battery one.

    No wiring other than the VHF power cords (I didn't do it) and a short wire from the fan are exposed in the interior. With patience, everything can be run through the conduits. All along the conduits are plastic hole covers from where the factory need...
