I kept the old fuse panel for my 73 for the same reason. The problem I have with the old fuse panel is sometimes I will lose power in a DC area because the fuse loses the connection. I take the fuse and the area where it is placed and give it a quick sanding. I always get power back. After a year the same thing happens again with another fuse or the same. I am getting a bit tired of doing that. I want to put in a modern fuse panel to eliminate that problem but I don't want to lose the other readings it gives me.
Not sure how this function works but I'll give it a shot. The only reason I used the old panel was to keep the two 50 amp fuses for the pos and neg battery connections and the ammeter shunt. the two grey wires on the left are the feeds from the new converter, one marked neg. the connections behind the old panel are the same as for the old converter with a pos and neg feed to the new fuse panel to feed the trailer systems. Trailer is stored for winter now so I can get at it if you need anything more specific. Hope this helps.....Phil.
I have the same type of old fuse panel. I was just shopping the same type of modern fuse panel you installed with your old. When I do this will I have to use the old with the new? I would like to see the back side of the panels to see what wire you brought over to the new fuse panel. Every time we camp I have to jiggle the old fuses because I lose power in certain places.
