Yep, I'm pretty sure there is only that one fuse box. There will also likely be 2 fuses coming off of the fat cable down by the batteries and the couple fuses you see scattered throughout the switch panel. All those little silver boxes in the switch panel are breakers, which take the place of fuses. They will self-reset themselves when thrown, which is sort of cool, but, depending on what they power, can be annoying. I had one breaker powering my defrost and heater fans and they would periodically turn off, then back on when they were both on high. I initially thought it was a wiring problem, but it turns out they were throwing the breaker, then the breaker would eventually reset, then get thrown again, etc... Separating the fans to be on separate breakers did the job.

Re: The Rocketship

Hi, not a lot of progress, but..

remember when i said i thought we blew a fuse in the switch panel? an electrician friend said he thought we fried this:



which is connected to all the things!



does anyone know what this thing is called? all my internet searches fail. a supplier would be good too, but all i really need to know is what it's called.
thanks!

in other news, we ground off the side walls and removed the insulation.




ground off the rest of the bolts in the floor, and took a steel cover off this hole.


seemingly it's above the fuel tank. should we leave it accessible? not really sure what it's for.

i really wish we were moving faster, this high humidity really makes it hard to do anything for more than 2 hours!

That would be a solenoid. Looks like a White Rodgers 100 amp solenoid: http://www.amazon.com/124-105111-Sol...rds=124-105111

If you know what your doing, you can use a cheaper 100 amp solenoid such as this one: http://www.amazon.com/CONTINUOUS-SOL...0+amp+solenoid
