The main AC wiring going through the hole is a concern I am working on. I've been unable to find the bulkhead fitting so if anyone knows where to get one let me know.
Who are you asking? The post prior to yours was 8 months ago.

Victor, It isn't a problem. Just thought if you needed an answer you could have a better chance getting an answer if you used the "quote" feature or PM.

Hey Victor,

You do have a busy control box. Interesting that there is a transformer in it as well None of my three 12.5 Perkins generator control boxes are layed out like yours, sorry. I am sure someone will chime in here with some better info, be patient

Just hit the "quote" button down at the lower right hand corner of the post you want to reference and it will come up on your screen. Works well especially to quote someone several posts previous.

Hey, post a few picks of the Unimog

Default 80 FC35 12.5 Kw Controller

I was thinking intimidating may be more appropriate than interesting. Four relays and three voltages. The transformer is for the 6 volt service although I cannot figure out why I need 6 volts.

Moderator, should I move this to a new thread as this will be a discussion on getting the controller working?

That's the picture I was referring to. Simple, to the point, nothing too complicated. Why is the one on my 80 so complicated.... And it doesn't work..

After more thought on the matter, I will open a new thread on my control box issues.

You don't need to start a new thread, your questions fit this topic, just continue on here.
