A/C wiring source

Postby shade2u2 » Tue Jun 25, 2019 9:23 am

Any recommendations on a good source for marine AC triplex wire? Or bus bars & such?
I've looked on Amazon, West Marine and a couple of other google finds.

2nd question - Any knowledgeable or certified marine electricians on here that would be willing to answer a few questions?

I am in process of rewiring my entire Shore Power system. Literally ALL of it, right down to receptacles. I've done a ton of research, and I'd be happy to share what I've learned.

I shopped Amazon and West Marine, mostly. I ended up using West Marine for most all of it, but there are slightly better deals to be had.

The problem is, I have a cut Capac cable about 12 inches away from the sensor in the bilge,
how can l repair this? can this be done.

If it is really the Capac system and not a transducer for depth or something else, yes, just splice the wire. The Capac is just a DC signal of about a millivolt. Nothing complicated.
