Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] 30 Amp 125 volt shore power to 50 Amp 125/250 Volt plug?


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Hello Bill (Rouse),

My Transformer is Original (option) from Amel, just never been used. I can only hope the wiring was done accordingly to:
blue wire goes to the neutral connection, brown wire goes to the hot and green/yellow goes to ground.

I am honestly not sure an “electrician” could be useful, in the only 4 years that I own my boat, I have noted that 2/3 of the people I hired did not do a proper job, nor knew anything… and I keep seeing that for other boat owners…

Marinco has confirm as well the link I mentioned will not work.
When I mentioned the 2 x 30 Amp 125 Volt going to a 50 Amp 125/250 Volt, they say it would work “IF” the marina has a Split Phase, but I doubt the marina knew about that…

Unfortunately that small marina in Tortola (Harbourview), so far only has 30 amp… this will be a first for me as well.
I have been asking them for 1 week, the answer is: we are working on it… kind of reminds me of the Bahamas…

Bill (Kinney),
I know about my second shore power going to the Transformer, but since it has never been used since installed 16 years ago, I don’t know if it is working… and in my case, when I arrive somewhere i do have to work right away for my clients (need electricity, etc.). so no time for down time which Island people don’t understand…
So now, I am just looking for back up alternatives…

Craig,
I have ask the marina is it was 50 Amp 125 Volt or 50 Amp 125/250 Volt, they were not able to answer…

Sincerely, Alexandre

Alex, No, that will not help.

Without knowing what
transformer you have and how it was wired...and if that
wiring has changed, none of us can give you much
input.
I suggest that before
you arrive at a marina that only has 110VAC available, that
you consult with an electrician and have him inspect what
you have.
BTW, I
was never in a marina that had only 110VAC 60htz
available...they all had 110VAC and 220VAC 60
htz.
You have my
wiring graphic for wiring to 220VAC 60htz without an onboard
transformer. If not it is in this album: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/amelyachtowners/search/photos?query=shore%20power#zax/albums_1949812811

Good morning,



The next marina I am going to is likely to only have 30 Amp
125 Volt.

Since I have never used my big transformer on the boat, I am
not sure it works, so trying to cover options.



I need 220 volt.

I am very ignorant when it comes to electricity…



Would the following product be ok?

http://www.go2marine.com/
product/389365F/pigtail-shore- power-adapter-30a-125v-male-
to-50a-125-250v-female.html

Or is there a problem with the phases or something else…




I am not concerned with the Amp, but the voltage…



Thanks in advance!

Sincerely, Alexandre
