In line fuses

I have been having trouble with my cockpit multifunction display. Sometimes it works (when I don t need it.) Sometimes it doesn t (when I am coming into port.) I finally tracked the problem down to erratic supply voltage. The culprit? The in line “marine grade” fuse holder. I learned two lessons:1. “Marine Grade” corrodes like everything else. Maybe slower.2. Never install a fuse behind six anti-theft screws that requires a special tool stored at the bottom of everything to remove.Fair winds and following seas :)Debut, Indonesia 24 July 2017

Garmin 5012 Multifunction Display

Got it sorted with Garmin Australia. Once they realized it was on the U.S. books it all came together. Shipped it off today for repair. After 1 hour of beautiful sunlight we are back to thunderstorms. Nice. Fair winds and following seas 🙂
