Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Electrical leak in mass circuit - SOLVED

Circuit breakers for the heads are in the engine room – but I think the breakers only cut the +ve wire. Would be interesting to know if it could be detected this way though.

Hello kent,

I am still euphoric about Ian's solution.

I doubt there is any circuit breaker for the electric wire going to the heads...
I just switch off the "light" breaker for the forward section of the boat on the 24 V Panel and is only for the light... to the head is still live.

But if possible, it would be a good idea to have a breaker for every electrical component. So switching it off would allow for a quicker trouble shootting.

Congratulations, Alexandre! I am amazed that Ian
found that to begin with! Could this be found by shutting
off everything on the boat using the circuit breakers, then
turning them on one at a time?
