custom made lockable fuse box

Published date: July 2, 2007
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

I purchased an RV external hydro electrical outlet box & coverted it into a lockable fuse box I basicaly installed a 4 gang fuse holder & ground block inside and wired up it feeds extra 12 volt power to my pedestal , cabin flourecent light and all cabin l,e,d lights, the fourth fuse is still to be connected yet I have ordered a second one to install in the cockpit poss in the pedestal. In the third pic you can see the white abs plastic pipe I heated and then formed to go around the eng, well from the bottom of the pedestal to the rear of the transom S/B side to the electrical junction boxes with the covers removed I then cut a 1/4" slot all the way along the back of the abs pipe this allows me to remove or add extra wiring at ease, drilled 2 small holes in the liner at each attachment point fed through plastic tie raps they hold the pipe up firmly the slot is hidden in the back of the pipe

Cheers John

    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...
