Ok. I learned something today. On the Sheiber panel the 120 volt (USA boat) power outlet switch is also a CFI unit breaker. I never realized this. I had my generator running to power my 120 v Watermaker and then also started to use my microwave. And all the power outlets quit working. But they would all work from the inverter. Hmmm. Looked at the wiring diagram and got more confused. All the GFCI devices were ok and did not trip. Eventually I noticed the switch to turn on the outlets was in off position. Hmm turned the switch on and everything again worked normally. I guess I just never knew that these switches were also overload protection. And I didn’t know that the inverter bypassed this switch. Live, sail, and learn I guess. Paul
Last year I bought a 2011 SO 409. During the survey the boat was connected to shore power. The surveyor was testing the outlets in the cabin and he told me one outlet was bad. This was the outlet under the nav station. I looked at and I saw there was a GFI test button on that outlet. I pressed the reset and the outlet worked. When the surveyor plugged in his tester, it his the test button and tripped it.
So be aware that some of the outlets have a GFI test button as well.
