Think the EMS/Autoformer install is figured out
We took the 3400RL to the dealer today for the trade-in and the new 3750FL is in the service bay getting additional installs performed on it. I did get a good look at the electrical supply system since every access panel was opened to facilitate the satellite system hookup. I thought the 3400 was daunting, but this critter is going to require some definite planning and engineering for the hard-wired EMS install as well as the Autoformer. The shore feed goes beneath the desk into the breaker box panel so that is where I focused my attention. For those unfamiliar with the floor plan, the desk is the foremost object before the step-up to the front of the rig. This means that all electrical and plumbing coming into the rig is accessible via an access panel in the basement pass-through that just so happens to be under the desk. I am leaning towards extending the electric feed from the shore panel though the basement into the battery box area. This is where I will install the Autoformer in the same manner as I had it in the previous rig. I prefer a stand-alone install with plugs that I can disconnect when needed and still have through feed on the electrical. The Autoformer will be equipped with male and female 50 amp plug and receptacle to accomplish this. On the return feed to the breaker panel, I will hardwire the Progressive Industries 50 EMS beneath the desk area and on the inside of the access panel wall. This will allow me to route the digital readout to the inside of the desk area. I will post photos of the before, during and after project details for those who are interested. I am wondering if I am going to be the guinea pig for the 3750FL electrical protection installs or if there is someone out there in MOC land that has not come forward yet!!
