HOW TO: Mod your DC panel under the dinette for easier fuse access


Recommended Posts

This is pretty self explanatory, my panel is under the dinette with the door hinge on the WRONG side, so access requires contortions and lots of swear words. Turn OFF the battery and shore power, remove the front cover with a small square tip bit. The manufacturer used an oddball screw to keep owners out, I suppose.

I could not see or reach the top fuse, so I cut the panel opening to allow better access. You must insulate the hot terminal and the copper bus strip!

One benefit is that it helps to prevent mangling the little ears that grip the fuses. Make sure all of yours fit snugly, squeeze with pliers if needed.
