can probably skip this section altogether. However, if you do overnight, keep
your boat at a dock or camp-cruise, a fan or fans might just be the key to a
successful outing and a good night’s rest.
especially salt water, and electrical components don’t mix. Corrosion at the
terminals can lead to increased electrical resistance. That resistance means
higher voltage drop and the possibility of localized heating at the terminal. A
worst case scenario is an electrical fire from the resulting heat.
of keeping water away from electrical connections is called a “drip loop”. The
wires going to a bus bar or terminal block are lead below the item being
connected to and then back up to form a loop. The theory is that the water will
run down the loop and drip off at the bottom of the loop. The drawing explains
