Ed LethertTroubleshooting the Problem Boat
(for technical/service staff)
IMI Electrical Webinar Series 
June 5, 2019
12:00pm - 1:15pm EST   

Previous IMI webinars included a review of the challenges faced by marinas and boaters as ground-fault protection becomes a larger and larger part of the boating environment. It is bad enough when one has a problem, but far worse when no one can be found to locate and correct it. This technical session will review many of the known causes of GFP tripping, and how to diagnose, locate, and correct the condition. While all are welcome, this session will be directed toward those individuals that have some understanding of electrical circuits and how they work. Familiarity with AC electrical systems aboard boats and with the operation and use of basic electrical text tools will be helpful.
