Before re-wiring check the guage of the wire to the various a/c items. You will probably find that it is minimum #12 AWG equivelant. You will want to replace any receptacles with 120v/15a NA ones. The battery charger and hot watertank (OR at least the element) will have to be replaced if you want to convert the boat to NA standard which to me makes more sense than mixing systems.
