Default 2500 SCR Breaker Panel Question

Can someone please explain to me the power choices on this panel. Shore power 1 vs. Shore power 2 with the reverse polarity and parallel? Also what is the load group 1 vs. load group 2 differences?

Default's really easy....
1) is the port side of the boat
2) is the stbd side of the boat and the AC system mainly...
parallel aligns both stbd and port together so that side 1 of shore pwr will pwr the whole boat...
look on the stern part of your boat where the electrical connections attach for shore power...should be shore pwr 1 and 2....shore pwr 1 will power both sides of the boat when the breaker panel is aligned to parallel..... can use a 50amp shore pwr connection with a splitter to both 30amp chords....then align your pwr panels to where pwr is on for 1 and 2....not parallel...

reverse polarity means usually that there is a bad ground somewhere......check all connections to your ac shore pwr connections...

hope this helps...
