Possibly I do not remember correctly, but I thought there was an inline fuse just hanging from some a wire
behind the battery switches. I think that has to do with memory of the cd changer/radio. Just a memory from 13 years ago at the Amel introductory class. I wish I was on board to check it for you.

Thanks, John. That's what I've decided to do with my 220AC system.
Now chasing down a connection between 24v DC (+) main cable (that goes from the main battery switch to the lug on the foreword bulkhead in the engine room...disconnected from all other cables at the lug) and the bonding system. When checking resistance, it is a solid (no resistance) connection that carries enough amps to light a test bulb when the main battery switch is on and all 24v breakers are off (including the ones in the engine room, passageway, and foreword port locker). When the switch is off it has no voltage, but still shows a no resistance connection. If I disconnect battery + cable in the battery compartment, the connection disappears. The negative side shows no connection or voltage with the switch either on or off.
The only 24v equipment that is connected to the battery side of the main switch is the Charles 60 Amp charger, and the "Permanent " 24->12V Sailor transformer under the Nav station.
Does any of this suggest to anyone where the connection is?
I'm in the Jacksonville FL area, does anyone know of a good...make that Great...marine electrician nearby?
Thanks again everyone for your patience and help.
