Hi chuck; my personal approach would be not to change the factory installed wire sizing. Two reasons;
1- I believe all systems on Amels were designed with specific logic that have proven themselves over time
2- there may be consequences to changes that we cannot anticipate.
We are able to run all systems on board our 54 on a 16A supply source without much inconvenience, by monitoring the power usage on board. My recommendation would be to add the power meter recommended by Bill of AmelSchool.com or a similar device in a location that is visible. After a while of monitoring, you will have a good feel of current draw by each system and know which ones can be run simultaneously.
Again on our 54, the main breaker at the panel is rated at 50A while the shore power breaker on the aft lazarette is rated at 32A.
