Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Dry dock bilge usage?

On the electrical drawings from Amel, it shows the sump pump coming from the battery side of the switch. That's how Kristy was wired when I got her. I have also moved the charger DC output cables to the battery side of the switch so I can turn everything off but the charger.

I agree Kent , keeping my boat on a mooring I want the sump to be working, but would like to disconnect the rest of the boat. I am reluctant to change things electrically , but am wondering if there is a compelling reason not to change it over. I hope everything went well for you.

Any reason we couldn't power the bilge pump from the battery side of the main switches? That's how my charger is wired.
I really don't think a functioning sump pump is necessary when on the hard, but when in the water, it would be nice to have a functioning sump pump, but turn everything else off.
