- Removed the Washer / Dryer
- Moved out the Freezer
- Moved out the Laundry Basket (ok, that was not that tuff)
- Cleaned out under Kristi’s shelf.
Then we will pull wires:
- Two sets of 10/4 cables for the two inverters
- Two 4 gauge wires for the dedicated bilge pump feed
- Two sets of remote panel control wire (telephone cable!) for inverters
- Two heavy Green Chassis bonding wires for the inverters
- Wire set to serve as voltage sense point for main engine house alternator
- Control wire for remote enable / disable of inverters (for when we have to manually ‘reset’ the Prosine 2KW inverter ….)
- Sensor wires for Link10 battery monitor
In all, about 500+ feet of wire. And this does not even count the heavy 373mcm I need to adjust for the 12v feeds to/from the inverters (once I physically relocate them )
And then after pulling all this wire I get to secure them every 18”, that will involve all of the above prep work PLUS pulling all the drawers out on the Starboard cabinets.
Boy it sure would have been easier to do this 2nd time around when I did it the 1st time. But in the end it will give a better balanced boat, and I will be changing the wiring approach to better match the needs to a full-time live aboard cruising boat vs. the times we were at the dock. So, in the end will be worth it.
