New Electrical Issue
I spent last week underneath my upper helm taking care of the rats nest of wiring and getting rid of 13 inline fuses. I used Blue Seas 6 individual circuit spade fuse blocks. There are 2 circuits under the helm, one from the main battery panel through a 50 amp breaker without an indicator light. The other is through the main electrical panel and a switchable breaker with an indicator light. I moved 3 things from the battery panel to the switchable breaker. The 3 things are an AIS transponder, a VHF radio , and a chartplotter, all Raymarine. With the radio and chartplotter turned off (the AIS doesn't have a switch) I turn off the breaker and the indicator light glows for a while and slowly goes out. If I remove the fuses from the 3 things the light goes right out. Is this normal and I didn't notice before when they were on a different circuit. Or is there a problem I should look into? With a voltmeter hooked to the circuit, I turn off the breaker, run to the flybridge, and see about 1.5 volts that slowly drops. I hope that's an adequate explanation. I'm hoping someone has an answer.
