Lots of choices for replacements.  If you want to have a "freezer" compartment, highly recommend the Sea Frost.  They custom build to your needs.  Standard plumbing was something like 10'.  I needed 14'.  No extra charge.

Common problem.  Buy one on Amazon or a local car parts store.  I mounted mine so it was visible through the engine access door in the head.  Wire it to the output of the alternator and ground.

Maybe I'm missing something, but if you have decided to not have the engine heat the hot water tank, why don't you just use a short piece of hose to connect (or just plug) the in/out water heater hose connections on the engine.  No need for valves etc.

Kooks similar to mine, except my filter is charcoal.  I get replacements at Lowes or the local RV store.

M25xp 1990 I'm at 2300+ engine still runs strong.  Worry more about gaskets drying out causing leaks.

Seafrost will make you a unit to fit. Extremely helpful staff.  They ask questions, you supply answers and you get a unit that works.  The freezed box will freeze meat over night.  Could not be happier.

Main Message Board / thru hull
« on: May 21, 2019, 12:20:35 PM »
Need to order a y valve so I can get my wash down system working again.  Anybody know what size the macerator thru hull is?  I think it is 1/2" NPT, but hate to order the wrong size.

Yes I know I am over market price.  This boat is loaded, clean and ready to sail.  Willing to negotiate the price.  Great boat, love it.  But been doing the Chesapeake for 20 years.  Ready to bare boat in the Med/Caribbean.  Hate having it sit unused.  This is the boat for you.

Ball valve already in place.  Makes changing the Racor a lot less messy.

John is right on the sizes.  Took 8' of the 1/4 and 10' of 3/8.  Plenty of extra.  Original routing did not make sense, my runs are more direct, therfore some extra slack.  But better to have too much than not enough.

Main Message Board / fuel lines
« on: May 07, 2019, 06:06:43 AM »
Checked the wiki and did a quick search, couldn't find the answer.  I think the fuel lines are 5/8", anyone know how much hose I will need to change both the supply and return lines.

Main Message Board / Re: Cracked rudder advice?
« on: April 27, 2019, 06:22:08 AM »
When I upgraded to the new eliptical rudder I disected my old one.  took about 2 hours of banging and sawing, they are made very strong.  I would start with the grinding to see how deep the crack is.  May only be on the top layer.  If deeper I would call Catalina and ask, they are very helpful in situations like this.

Recently purchased a new toy.  95 VW camper van.  Simple system, start battery and house battery.  House is charged by engine through a selenoid or via shore power.  Second day of our first road trip killed the house battery because the selenoid failed. Would like to add a circuit to show the house is getting charged.  Have a couple ideas.  Electrical Guru's what do you think?  One pic shows a warning light.  I think I will use a volt meter instead.  I only   want to show charging when the engine is running not house battery voltage.  Have a seperate system for that.

Main Message Board / Re: Poor exhaust water flow
« on: January 16, 2019, 06:00:18 AM »
every time I have had reduced flow it has been from barnacles growing in the intake.  Have a diver check from the outside or remove the strainer and use a length of wooden dowel to remove any resrictions.  Once you find the right size dowel, put a string around it and hang it from the fuel pump for next time.
