Oh, forgot to address your ? about the 110 circuit. It was added by Amel at the original owner's request and goes through a110-220 transformer before going to the chargers.  I have to physically unplug a connection from the 220 power supply and plug it into the 110 power supply at the forward bulkhead in the engine room to use the 30A 110V shore power.

Hey Kent,
Sailing south you won't need the heaters - problem solved :-)

I'd guess the 110v feed is an add-on by the former US owner of Kristy, not original Amel, correct? What wattage are you drawing on your heaters - many are in the 1800w range. Sounds like you've got more than one - two would present 3600w which at 120v gives you the 30A limit of your cable - no wonder it's hot!

If you need the heaters until you go south, can you run a separate additional 110 line out to the dock for one of the heaters? ... or get a 220v heater?

Seems you really needn't rip into the Amel wiring at all.

Cheers,
Craig
