How's this for a box?

Postby IraRat » Tue Jun 07, 2005 2:33 pm

From Boater's World for $119.

Will this do the trick, based on my schematic in my other post? Or is there a better unit I should be lookng at? (The photo says 12V, but the description is for the 120V model.)

Also, I'm looking at the 7 line model, which you have to use the pull-down to see the specs on. (This will only link to the 4-line page.)

I think I paid $7 plus shipping for 10 fuses. The ground bars are from Home Depot.

These are circuit breakers. Yours are fuses, correct?

I want to go with breakers, and this unit includes all of the breakers, which can sell individually for 10 to 15 bucks each. Additionally, don't ask me what the difference is, but the marine grade units are supposed to be a lot better for salt water enviornments, where I'll hopefully be spending most of my camping time if I ever finish this thing.

TOO MUCH $$$

Breakers are for 110/120V, not 12V. All 12V should need is a fuse block which is cheap. Breakers can be used for 110-120V applications. I will have one AC unit and a couple of double AC outlets in my trailer. Everything else will be 12V. I will buy a breaker box from Lowes that will hold two double breakers (4 lines). I'll use one for the AC, and one each for the front and rear outlets, leaving one spare. Total cost? About $26 bucks for the box and breakers. Add a GFI and wiring to that.

There are a lot of good options out there from building your own to buying them premade. I like the look of the marine power panels and that one would match the theme of your trailer.

Although I know that you don't want 12v, others may be interested in this 110v/12v panel . At $55.95 the price looks pretty good too.

Cleave had posted about this site for his converter, but I thought this power panel was pretty neat.
