I have a Beneteau 381 that has 2 shore power outlets. Several people have asked me why, & really, I have no idea. When I chartered I never had to plug the shore power in. Someone said the other day I only need to plug one chord in & not both (the boat came w/ a double chord).

Anyone know? It does have A/C so maybe that requires the extra power.

One is 16A for normal appliances and one is 32A for A/C, washing machine etc.
Have the same on our Jeanneau 53

We have two 30A connections. Our AC panel is divided between them so that one side is shared with the inverter/charger and low amperage circuits, and the other side the AC, water heater, and high amperage circuits. This way, high loads can't be accidentally, run off the inverter if the shore power fails.

If you have two, it is probably the same - your AC panel is split between them, and you should have two main AC inlet breakers on the panel.
