Re: Autopilot Install

I used an inline 5A fuse for my Seatalk NG network on my 10A electronics circuit (protected with a circuit breaker). This isn't what Raymarine recommends, but it has worked well for me. The autopilot (X5) and plotter (e7d) are on the same circuit. VHF is critical, so it gets it's own circuit.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
