This looks and seems a good solution. We however have no room for it. I wish they could make an afordiable panel in a self containe box. That way we cvould install it in a out-of-the way location.

Our nav staion is full.

Any way this is what we came up with. It uses some original breakers and we just added two samll buses.

What we did was we installed two buses. They are the small round type and Blue Seas (PowerPost) bus.



We connected one to the power (black) post on the 30 amp breaker just after it comes into the boat as it comes out the bottom of the breaker and the same for the common (white) wire.



The for example we wired the power to a 20 amp breaker and then the breaker to the hot water heater. The common from the Hot water heater to the common round bus. The green to the green bus which is used for all AC ground.

Seems to work out great.
