Dear Boat Wiring Guys,
I am looking at your complete shore power system and it seems to be perfect for my boat.
Could you please me if this is a 30 amp system or a 15 amp system?
Also, Does your unit come with some connection to the battery so that the batteries are charging while pluged into the shore power? I want to be charging my boat batteries while I'm plugged into shore power.
I have a 27 Catalina sailboat that has an outboard motor. The only thing the batteries provide power to are the stereo, interior cabin lights, running lights, ship to shore radio, etc. It does not power the outboard.
It is actually a 20 amp system.
The inlet is a standard Marinco 30 amp inlet that works with any 30 amp twist lock cordset. The main breaker is a 20 amp dual pole. All outlets and wiring are rated at 20 amps or higher.
To charge your batteries, simply plug in a marine grade battery charger to either one of the remote outlets or one of the outlets on the back of the panel. When the shore power cord is connected, the battery charger will be charging.
The battery charger is not included.
Hope this helps,
