Re: Shorepower, transfer switch & genny

John, glad you found part of the issue.Those gremlins are the worst . Took me 2 months to figure one out and wound up rewiring the entire panel as you mentioned. I had to add a separate selection switch for each feed and checked each common and ground wire with an elec meter when I put it back toge...

Re: Shorepower, transfer switch & genny

I have located part of the problem... shorepower ground, selector switch and galvanic isolator. Shorepower and selector switch may get completely rewired this weekend as the weather is looking decent. I'm replacing the galvanic isolator and redoing the grounds to the panel too. 3 of my 4 shorepower ...

That boat is probably on the hard at the boat club. I've heard that the hull is somewhat similar to th...

Can they be cleaned?
