It really doesn’t get any better than this. For the last few days, I have been chasing out earth leaks on the boat. For those not in the know, an earth leak is stray electricity – going somewhere it shouldn’t. Can be catastrophic on a boat.
So this morning I started on the 3rd distribution box that is showing a leak. Quite a thankless task searching for leaks, Isolate a box, break all the live sides, then unscrew all the neg sides in the back of the box, fiddling through the breakers and cables with your finger, careful not to drop those tiny screws and washers. Then, one cable at a time, reconnect and test for leaks with each individual connection. Gets a bit painful if you have 30 or so breakers in a box, even more painful when your access to the test box is in a crawl space under the floor.
Well today, I found this little beauty to help me speed through the day – there is a god!
