Re: What to do about a 220V electrical system?
Sorry, late to the party. I have a good buddy who did this. Bought his boat in England, shipped it to Newport and had the 220v converted to 110v. Seemed like a nightmare from afar. Very costly, although, I don't recall the number he did tell me at the time. He also had to change all the chargers, AC units, receptacles, etc. He rationalized it all as having brand new stuff, like a refit.
However, he has odd issues, as I think it was 99% replacement and that last 1% gets him. For example, I believe he has an odd shore power receptacle on the boat. While he has an adapter, he was left hanging when he wanted to get one to plug into a standard shore outlet when on the hard. There are other gotchas, but I can't recall them all.
I know this much from watching him. I will never do it.
