Exclamation P28-1 Shore Power setup

Hi all - I'm a new owner of a 1979 P28-1. Well maintained and equipped, a sweet sailing boat. Have a question about shore power setup. Is 30 amp shore power connection standard or an add-on? My setup has a 20 amp battery charger and 3 sets of gfci outlets, only 1 of which has a reset button, which seems to control the entire shore power input. Trip it and there is no shore power on board.

What fascinates (and scares!) me is that there is a household type fuse box with a 15 amp glass screw in fuse in the line before the charger. Everything seems to work well but I'm curious as to whether or not this is factory installed or an owner add-on. There is no master shore power switch or polarity indicator that I can find. When I activate the shore power from the power post the charger kicks in and the outlets are live. ANY ADVICE IS WELCOME!!! Peter
