Re: Simple 15A Shore Power In Small Boat (Looking to install in-line 15A AC Breaker)
I have found much of this thread difficut to follow but going from a 30amp pedestal through an 15amp adatpter to a 30amp boat is contrary to NEC, NFPA303 and ABYC E-11.
By doing this you are turning the 15amp cord into a 15amp fuse. If the breaker on your boat is 30amp and you turn things on totaling more than 15amps ... things will melt before a breaker trips.
