Sources for 12 volt distribution

Hey folks,
Need a little advice. It seems that I need to replace my 12 volt distribution panel with a new one. It seems that the plastic on the old panel has shrunken/cracked and the rivets that hold the fuse holder together are loose creating bad connections.

Where is a good source to find a new panel?
Here are pictures of the old panels. I would also like to change out the other small panel that has fuses for all the other 12 volt sources for the umbillical cord. I would like to use ATC automotive type fuses if possible.

Take a look at Cole Hersee Co.. They may have what you are looking for. Most heavy-duty truck or off-road equipment parts suppliers stock or can order from Cole Hersee.
Hope this helps you out.

I found the ones for our airstream motorhome at O'Reillys. They have the newer style with the plastic plug in fuses. Price was very reasonable.

We had the same problems you did with the rivets coming loose and causing all kinds of problems.

Good luck!

The attached picture of the distribution board was recommended as a replacement because it has a 30 amp circuit capability.
What type of insulating material would one use between the board and the mounting surface?
