Re: Shorepower, transfer switch & genny

I've heard that sometimes these problems originate at another boat Thank you for the idea. I thought about that, but I think that I eliminated that by narrowing it down to three of my shorepower plugins. One specific shorepower plugin gets me a reading 0.90 plus while the other 3 plugins send the c...

Re: Shorepower, transfer switch & genny

My readings and electric leak issue actually occur without any breakers or systems drawing on the panel. Actually the low readings occur with all main breakers turned off.

Re: BALLAST in the stern of 39 Sedan
