Post RV-12iS Service Bulletin 20-03-16 - Check terminal wire colors on AV-60000 module

Van's has published a service bulletin specific to all ELSA RV-12iS aircraft/kits that include the Garmin IFR Nav/Com avionics kits, along with an updated KAI Section 42MiS/U (Common Electrical). Note that we updated the service bulletin document on March 19, 2020 to clarify the scope of the document, which is limited only to the instructions used when installing the Garmin IFR avionics kit option.

Page 42, Figure 1 from that section has been updated to identify proper screw terminals on the AV-60000 Power Module. In the original version of this document, the Yellow and Blue terminal descriptions were illustrating the wrong terminals. The wires going to the Yellow and Blue terminals will need to be examined and, where required, swapped to match the updated plans page.

Note that each of these terminals are connected to 30-amp fuses. But, in order to ensure the fuse labels on the panel indicate the correct function, it is important to ensure the wires are connected as described in the updated plans section. This can become very important in the event of certain aircraft emergencies where the pilot needs to pull the correct fuse to mitigate a risk. Because the original KAI drawings were in error, builders/owners should anticipate the likely need to swap the wires on the two affected terminals.
