[Amel Yacht Owners] Cable routing 1988 Maramu 46

John Clark

Graham, I cannot answer definitely because I have an SM.  On my boat there are separate DC breakers for the watertight compartments.  On SM 37 the breaker for the aft cabin it is located in the head over the toilet....  If not located there it might be nearby.  Amel logic is to put breakers near the load.

Can anyone help me with an electrical problem in our 1988 Maramu 46 #240.

All the lights in the aft cabin have failed.  We checked all the bulbs,
of course! We have established that the problem is with the positive
cable as we have checked the negative (ground) cable and it has
We've established that, if we get power to any one of the light
fittings, all will then work. 

We can't work out how the positive cable gets from the circuit breaker
on the 12v panel and the first light in the aft cabin.  All the cables
are hidden. 

If anyone has had this problem before or has access to a cable routing
diagram, I'd be glad of your experience. 

Kind regards
