There is source 1 and source 2 switches on the AC electrical panel representing the two 30amp power connectors. There is also a transfer swich with a blocking mechanism does not allow you engage when both sources switches are on. very strange can someone explain how this system is supposed to work
Source 1 and 2 are your shore power cords and the two lights are for them respectively. There are breakers at the shore power connection points on the inside of the transom for each leg well.
The switches are in Shore Power position or Gen Set Position not both at the same time. So start your Gen Set, Shut off the Shore power breakers and slide the switch cover over. Not strange, it keeps you from mixing shore power and your Gen Set.
No the 34t is not like the 390. We do not have forward shore power connections in the bow I'm sorry to say. I kinda of like that although I never go in bow first but a day will come I'm sure.
