Electrical Connections Board

In order to get all our electrical connections readily accessible, we put this board up to the aft of the galley. We only have one battery bank of 4 Trojan 105 batteries so the large red switch is a on/off switch for all DC power. The large red fuse to the left of the on/off is on the line from the DC on/off to the main DC switch panel. The system negatives are combined in lower left of pic. The fuse panel to the right of the DC on/off is for the down stair systems there is another small fuse panel in the steering pedestal. The fuses in these panels are ATC fuses that glow when they short out. The white box on the top of the board is a Sterling Power 10 amp smart charger. Right of the charger is the Balmar Smartgauge for checking battery status. Under the Smartguage are a 12 volt power plug(our Engel Fridge plugs in here), the other is a double USB port. All our wiring connections are on this board or at the device. There is still plenty of room to add stuff to this board. There is about 3/4 of an inch of space behind the board to run wires.
