Question about Kohler Electrical Supplies
Kohler generator.Have a Kohler 4ckm in my motorhome, de-icer pulls like 16 amps, blows the 10 amp board fuse, can I just unhook it?
a fuse is there to protect the circuit and the genset
check why the de-icer is pulling so many amps as the problem may be in that unit
a 10 amp outlet has a maximum current capacity of 10 amps as that is the current allowable from the gen set and wire capacity
even if you had an outlet with 15 amp rating , it would still be blowing fuses as the 16 amps is above the allowable current draw
you would need a 20 amp outlet ( difficult to get unless it is in a house power board and are normally reserved for hot water systems , stoves and other high current usage units and are normally then not outlets but hard wired in to a circuit breaker

Testimonial: "Yes, the de-icer is shorted. But it is not an available part. Don't see the use for it , I don't use the RV in cold weather . Seems like I should be able to unhook the power to the heater and run the set without the de-icer"
