Breaker - DC Distribution Panel - 3860

Postby JNelson90 » Tue Jul 10, 2018 12:34 pm

My shower sump has a 2 Amp red push to reset breaker in my engine room. My owner's manual / documentation shows it should be a 5 amp. I had replaced my shower sump with a larger Johnson SPX sump but it draws 2.3 amps and trips the breaker occasionally. I would like to replace with a 5 amp breaker (pending validation that the wire / length supports the higher amperage) but after searching today I am unable to locate an exact replacement. Blue Sea Systems makes the Medium-Duty push-button reset-only circuit breakers that look just like mine but they are only available in the larger amp sizes. They make a panel mount in the smaller size with a black button but not a direct replacement for mounting on the distribution panel. Anyone out there replaced any of the red push button reset breakers from your DC Distribution Panel and know the maker / part number?
Kindest regards, Jeff

Best way to check is take out the panel and look on the back to see what brand / model it is. There is a good chance that its no longer made the exact same way now even from the same manufacture after 11-12 years... ;)
Thanks, Chris

I left the boat without getting the specifics thinking it would be easy to source; once I get back I will check the part number/manufacturer information. Thanks for the feedback.
Kindest regards, Jeff
