will need to replace the shorepower inlet mounted on your boat. Even with SmartPlug® installed on the boat, you will still be using a traditional twist-lock type on the dock pedestal.
Let’s return to the propane stove versus shorepower cord comparison. According to research conducted by BoatUS, propane stoves account for less than 1 percent of all fires on inboard-powered boats. In contrast, A/C electrical failures account for 17 percent of all fires and most of these fires start somewhere in the shorepower connection. So why do we fear propane stoves and take a casual attitude toward shorepower cords?
Regardless of the stove you choose, make sure you give the shorepower connections the attention they deserve. And after you cook, make sure you clean that cutting board.
