Mermaid AC problem solved
Posted: Sat Oct 07, 2017 1:04 pm
I got a Mermaid AC with my 1988 32' project boat. I needed to have it serviced. The AC tech weighed about 350 lbs and didn't want to crawl into the "wine cellar" under the salon deck to get at the unit. I had to take it out and bring it to his shop. Hire a skinny tech for boat work. The unit then blew cold or hot but would shut off intermittently and would not stay on over several days. I lived with it for a couple of years until the water pump plastic housing broke. I installed the recommended replacement which was a very sturdy unit with a epoxy coated metal case and much larger GPH. The unit now runs perfectly and is always on when go out to the boat.
