Just to put a defined point on it - all of the appliances on the vessel now, whatever they may be (TV, inverter, microwave, whatever) will be dumped when the vessel reaches NZ and will be replaced with the equivalent 220v appliances.
So, EBS, there's nothing to worry about on that score. I understand that 220v is going to toast any 110v appliance, for the trip from US to NZ I will continue to use the appliances on the boat now because they're all compatible with the inverter until it is plugged into 220v. That will only happen when I get home.
It was just the wiring, switches, basically the distribution panel, that I was worried about.
It seems that all agree, I have nothing to worry about in that regard.
Thanks again all for the advice.
Oh and SD, "SWMBO" is more about "line of least resistance" than anything else.:-)
