Re: Splitting Shore Power Cable

Mold would be pretty unusual in the dead of winter in the northern latitudes, unless you already have an active colony. Cold winter air can't hold much moisture, so it's naturally dry.

Most marina's around here won't allow a boat to be plugged in, on the hard, while away. Batteries only need to be topped up every 4 to 6 weeks, assuming they are fully disconnected and not drained by parasitic load. We also put Kanberra Gel aboard, which seems to work best in closed unvented environments. All cabinets are opened and about a dozen buckets of Dry-rid are placed around in the sinks, etc. She is vented with fresh, cold, dry air, each time we stop by to top charge the batts.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
