If so, why is the fusing or breaker in the first illustration not adequate to protecting downstream circuitry from overload? Please explain to poor dumb me.
Also true of the 50 to 30 as sold?
Is the manufacturer assuming that the trailer itself is adquately fused?
I'm upgrading to a 30 amp Atwood panel. The panel itself has a master breaker, and 15amp breakers for individual circuits in the trailer. On a new trailer, I'm guessing that there will be some sort of breaker system.
The origional 1973 wiring on my boler
was 15 amps with no fuses of any sort. With an adapter, I could potentially draw more power then the system could handle and create a melt down situation.
