So I'm finally getting around to replacing the converter in my Uhaul
. the original one still works but it'll boil the junk out of a battery
....it did my old deep cycle trolling battery
I put in there and I haven't replaced that yet until I could replace the converter.
Here's what I've got so far:
PD9245C Converter (45A)
BlueSea DC 6 Circuit Distribution Panel
SCOSCHE In-Line Fuse Block w/40A Maxi
I know the factory converter has the circuit panel built in. I don't currently have time or money (just installed a fantastic fan last week) right now to redo all the wiring and it looks in pretty good shape. My hope is to pull the old converter, wire in the new one, and then wire in the distribution panel.
I know I need to wire the 40A maxi fuse block on the positive side of the Circuit Panel. What I'm not sure is if it matters if the 40A is between the battery
Which is better or does it matter?
40A block PD9245C
I also have a SCOSCHE PDM482 Fused Distribution Block
laying around. It has 30A fuses in it but perhaps I should use it in place of the 40A in-line and put a 50A fuse? on the side that goes to the converter?
As for Load right now, I have Fantastic fan wired in in place of the old swamp cooler, original heater, LED's over the sink, original stove hood, and original flourescent over the closet door.
I plan to add some USB and cigarette lighter outlets for accessories later. Accessories would be charging phones, and possibly powering a small 7-9inch LCD/DVD player (kind that you hang on the back of the seat in the car for kids).
