fair - what is a DC bonding system? I've seen the galvanic isolator mentioned elsewhere but wasn't sure what drove that need. I have an OB motor (that is kept out of the water at the slip). I've understood that IB motors/shafts are one of the main issues in electrolysis(?) and corrosion so thought I was pretty safe. What else am I missing?
free - thanks for the feedback. I was just going by the original C27 wiring diagram. For our purposes, 1 circuit is actually fine as it is just a lake boat. We really only need an interior light and/or charging capabilities while in the slip. Thus far we've been using an extension cord run from the slip outlet through the deck hatch - so anything is an upgrade. In this case, do you think a panel is still necessary? Seems like a lot of money to throw at a glorified extension cord.
dog - be a little calmer with your PMs will ya? Typing that many asterisks can hurt a guy.
