Rate this topic

7 posts in this topic

Question : Getting a slip this year. Comes with 30 Amp service plug on dock. How do I use the dock service to run a buffer or other electric

tool ? I do not have a power panel on the boat. Can I use a 30 Amp Male plug wired to a regular 3 prong Female extension cord ? Or will

I blow up my tools ?

Some of the towers are modular and capable of supporting multiple feeds, like 2 30 amp circuits, or a single 50 amp circuit. Some are capable of splitting the 30 amp service to 2 15 amp services also. Ask the dockmaster to split the service into 2 15 amp circuits with regular receptacles.

 

You typically need a 30 amp circuit for an air conditioner, and the other 30 will feed the house. Battery bank, lights, batt charger, fridge, microwave, blender, power tools, etc. The towers are capable of multiple configurations, modular. Piece of cake.

 

Some places ban power tools dockside, just so ya know. Where's the slip?
