Re: Refrigerator Replacement

Where the old refrigerator was I put a microwave/convection oven under the counter. It's a much better location than up high as far as not spilling hot stuff all over you. Below that I put in two sliding open drawers for cooking utensils.

Re: Refrigerator Replacement

The inverter does 1800 watt AC, which is enough for a microwave, coffee maker or the things first mates use for their hair. The 70 watts the refrigerator uses is insignificant as far as the inverter goes, also computer, phone charger, WiFi and lights. Normally the amp draw on the house bank stays un...

Re: Refrigerator Replacement

I put a larger refrigerator in where the hanging clothes locker was across the aisle form the galley. I cruise for weeks at a time between reliable and easy (to get to) groceries so a real freezer was desired. It draws 6 amps as measured on the DC monitor on the house bank batteries. 600 amp hours p...

I don't think it is cavitation per se when the t...

Re: What year and model is this boat?

Bob,

Are you saying that the "owner" doesn't have the title or transferrable registration card and you are considering buying it? You can possibly track the boat down with the government of Illinois since the registration numbers are there nice and fresh.

Re: Carb Problem

I think if the diaphragm in the mechanical fuel pump (marine setup) fails it will leak gas into the crankcase. I still don't understand how a stuck open float/needle valve would make your engine idle down and put gas in the oil. If you still have the carb that Edelbrock has authorized the return for...
