    replacing a 12v DC breaker panel

    I'd either just replace the 120volt 2pole blue seas breaker and hope that's it. especially if 12volt side works fine. Or move install a 120volt complete panel next to the 12volt panel and remove all 120 volt wires out existing panel move to new as there's less 120v wires
