Marine - AC or DC ?
I have zero knowledge of electrical systems.
My Islander 30 has 2 new batteries, with a 'perko' switch ( rotary switch that can select battery 1, 2, or both for cranking the diesel ).
The electrical panel has 6-8 toggle switches ( cabin lights, nav lights, bilge, ect.. ) it is old and needs replaced.
i would like to buy a panel that has the same 6-8 switches on it, but also has a gauge for each battery's level.
I am looking online, and there are a panels that are AC or DC.
Again - I do not know electricity.
The boat is currently on a powered dock, but will be moved off and I will use a solar panel to keep the batteries charged.
Any ideas or examples of what I want?
