Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] 220v shore power cord

Richard Piller <richard03801@...>

We agree we've done and continue to do it. You may
also want to get a 120 volt 30 amp plug as well. This
of course means you'll need a new battery charger to
handle both 220 and 120. We just installed a unit
from Dolphin that does the trick quite well.

We also added a True Sine 24 volt to 110 volt inverter
to do away with Amel 220 to 12 volts..

Good luck

You absolutely do not need to replace the cord with
a 4 wire cord. the stock cord is more than
sufficient as the boat does not use the white
neutral wire as normally found on USA boats. Just
get a 50 amp plug. hook the brown to the black in
the plug. hook the green to the green in the plug ,
and the blue to the red in the plug and you are
ready to plug into any 50 amp outlet in the USA or
northern Caribbean.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] 220v shore power cord

I am in the process of purchasing a 1998 SM in the
US. I have been
told by a surveyor and electrician that the stock
220v shore power
cord does not meet US electrical code standards,
and that the cord
needs to be replaced by a 4 wire, minimum 10 guage
cord. The
replacement cord is much heavier and thicker, and
requires the groove
in the aft lazarette cover to be enlarged. Has
anyone had experience
with replacing this cord? Thanks.
