Installation of Xantrex battery charger and Blue Seas System MRBF fuse block.
I recently installed a Xantrex TRUEcharge 40 amp battery charger in a dual engine power boat. As fusing is required between each battery bank and the charger, I decided to use the mew MRBF 5194 surface mount 3 circuit fuse block.
In past installations I've used individual fuse blocks (usually ANL MIDI or MaxiFuse) for this purpose. I found that the individual fuse blocks used up a lot of physical space. One must allow for fingers to get around the cover for removal purposes.
The MRBF 3 circuit fuse block has only one cover and a small footprint fuse. This saves a lot of space. The charger has three outputs and this fuse block has three fuses. Very convenient. Please check amperage requirements for fuses and wire sizes for the size of your installation.
I would suggest the use of this fuse block.
