Time to upgrade the 12 volt fuse panel..suggestions?
My Lights in my minuet were flickering as we walked on the floor. I traced it to a loose rivet and bracket that holds the rivet on the positive side of the 50 AMP breaker on the fuse panel.
My fuse panel has the original glass fuses (It's the original Univolt as well).
The fuses are set up as following (from bottom up):
Batt charge pos :50 A
Main charge 30A
cir 1- 20 A
cir2- 20 A
cir3- 20 A
cir4- 20 A
I called around for a replacement, including vintage trailer, and they don't have fuse panels that took this many amps. The parellex, and Blue sea don't seem to be able to handle the 50 amp plus the other amps.
I asked a guy at a local boat store and he said since the 50 amp was the only one that was bad, I could install a Mini Max 50 AMP fuse and that would fix it.
This didn't work, the lights now don't work at all...Possibly because they're not on the same "strip" as the rest of the fuses?
Anyhoo- Guess I'm in for a new fuse box. Can anyone reccommend the proper panel/ box? Also, I'm running lamps until I get this fixed. That should be ok, because the plugs are tied to breakers, correct?
Many thanks for the info!!
