option the boat must be connected to dockside power
and the MICROWAVE breaker must be switched to the
“ON” position to supply power to the microwave.
ALWAYS check the Reverse Polarity Indicator
Light in the AC distribution panel immediately
upon connecting the shore power cord before

aker. If the light is on, a problem with a reversed
electrical connection  exists.   Disconnect the
shore power cord immediately. Notify the mari-
na and have the dock’s shore  power connec-
tion inspected.
Receptacles - The OUTLETS  circuit breaker must be
switched to the “ON” position  to supply power for the
corresponding receptaclesin theAC system. (For those
models with  the receptacles built  into the AC  panel,
power is supplied to the receptacles when shore power
is provided.)
Most receptacle circuits are capable of handling 15 am-
peres.  Refer to Table III for a list of equipment and the
electrical currents  usually required  to operate  these
items.  For 220 volt, 50 Hertz models,  divide all of the
current ratings below by 2. Usually, the power require-
ment is specified on the electrical item. This is only an
approximation of  the electric  current usage  normally
Under proper operating conditions, the Reverse Polar-
ity Indicator Light will not be on.  A green light is  pro-
vided for the shore power and will be ON when dockside
power is being used.
Some marina shore power systems may be im-
properly grounded  to retard  electrolysis (see
Section H-7 Stray Current Corrosion).  Before
using any 110 volt equipment,  make sure the
necting the cord to the inlet.

D.   Ground Fault Current Interrupters (GFCI)
The Ground Fault  Current Interrupter (GFCI) is  a de-
vice which protects against hazardous electrical shock
from improper ground. An appliance electrical cord with
worn insulation or damp equipment may have stray cur-
rent which will run through electrical grounds. Stray cur-
rent as above will result in an electrical shock.

One GFCI receptacle will protect all of the receptacles
on the circuit. A GFCI may be used as a receptacle as
well as an interrupter.
