I haven't really posted much in the forums over the last few years. This winter's project will be re-doing the electrical system aboard my boat and cleaning up/organizing the rats nest that lives behind the panel(biggest part of the project). That being said, I am reading the manual for my Magnum MS2812 inverter/charger and it shows the following as recommended:
AC IN to HOT IN 1 > Jumper> HOT IN 2
AC OUT from HOT IN 2 > Jumper > HOT IN 1
Does anyone have any opinions on why this maybe? Currently looking at the charger, it definitely is not wired that way. The only reason I could think this was in the event of a short, that jumper would short out first, but then what is the point of having it fused if you have the jumper as your short point?
