    Hunter 49 Solar Panel Installation Advice

    Our location is Vancouver island and we use solar panels with no problems, we don't use shore power from March to November. When sailing we'll anchor for 3 weeks with no power problems, batteries are always charged . BTW we don't run the engine while at anchor so I can't see not having solar...

    Antenna Wire

    Have you looked at the plug behind the nav station, on ours its a GFI and is wired to the one in the cupboard. I replace both this year and each is wired to the 110 bus and not to each other.

    Check Your GFI's

    I replaced all the wires for both GFI's and also found that they did not conform to the elec. diagram from Catalina. Now they have there own breaker and lines from the 110 volt bus.

    Check Your GFI's

    Found the GFI plugs not working. I looked at both and found this by the Nav Station. Had to replace all the wires to the GFI's.
