Automatic shore power switch?
I have an older boat, when I connect to shore power I have to switch a manual switch down then up to engage it.
If there is any fluctuation in voltage, the switch will flick off like a fuse almost resetting itself to the off position (and our batteries will kick in).
The issue I have is that the batteries drain if we are not home and although the power may have been off for only a second, we manually have to turn it back on.
Can someone give me a brand and name of a switch control that will automatically engage when power is restored.
I'm not quite sure what I am looking for specifically other than the fact that every modern boat seems to cope with this scenario automatically and without intervention.
I'm going to guess what I want is an automatic changeover switch?
