In 2011 we rewired the mains to a 12 way dual RCD consumer unit, in the battery room. This simplified the wiring system but also meant that if a socket or heavy electrical user trips one RCD, the other RCD stays on, providing lights or power to the next section of Waterdog. If the lights blow a RCD, then we can plug in a lamp to the socket circuit. We also took the original consumer unit out of the narrow corridor on the starboard side forward and replaced that with slimline, maintenance free junction boxes that were hidden behind a panel on the wall.
