In line fuses

I have been having trouble with my cockpit multifunction display. Sometimes it works (when I don't need it.) Sometimes it doesn't (when I am coming into port.) I finally tracked the problem down to erratic supply voltage. The culprit? The in line "marine grade" fuse holder. I learned two lessons:

1. "Marine Grade" corrodes like everything else. Maybe slower.

2. Never install a fuse behind six anti-theft screws that requires a special tool stored at the bottom of everything to remove.

Fair winds and following seas :)
