Re: Battery Charging Assistance
What's the advantage of turning off the switch, vs. turning all breakers except the bilge pump one off?
If the bilge pump is wired through a fuse, how will you know if it blew the fuse (unless the boat sinks)?
It's good to have an indication that the bilge pump has failed, that is provided by a tripped breaker.
