are a source of serious electrical hazard. The reverse
polarity light will indicate if a problem exists at the 120
AC electrical system shore connection.
Microwave - The MICROWAVE breaker must be
activated and the boat connected to dockside power
or use the generator (if applicable) to supply power to
the microwave.
If a problem exists, the reverse polarity indicator light
will come on when the shore power cable is attached
to the inlet. DO NOT activate the shore power switch
in the cabin when the reverse polarity light is on.

icemaker is standard on the 338 Vista  models. A
refrigerator may be exchanged for the icemaker. The
COCKPIT REFRIGERATOR breaker located on the
AC side of the AC/DC cabin panel must be “ON” to

manual for more information.
Under proper operating conditions, the reverse
polarity indicator light will not be on. A green light is
provided for the shore power and will be “ON” when
dockside power is being used.
