Okay, I have lots of shore side electrical experience. On shore you never, ever, not ever break the neutral through a switch or circuit breaker of any kind. There are lots of good reasons for this. Can someone point me to a reference on marine AC that explains why the neutral wire would be broken by a switch on a boat, as mentioned above?
