    Digital panel 120 vac meter

    Nice! That’s really the way to do it. My old fashion meter is working good and my Gen set is 5kw so I’m not too worried about amp draw. I ran my AC and water heater at the same time last weekend. No overload. I may upgrade to what you have done this winter.

    Added Large High Flow Blower to Generator Area

    Success! We ran the generator for hours and hours this weekend and we had no vapor locks. I left the New high flow blower running when ever the Gen was running. Then I left it run for 45 minute to an hour after I shut it down. Works like a charm. I think it will keep the whole area dryer too...

    330 Fresh Water problem?

    To each his own. I’ve replaced both pumps, and then replaced the washdown pump a second time to go with a Pro Blaster 4.0. I also changed the tiny diameter hose that a Grady had running from the pump to the washdown hose To 3/4” hose. All thru the small access panel. But I’ve been working full...

    330 Fresh Water problem?

    There’s a small removable panel down in the berth on the port side. You can easily change the pump working thru that hole. I’m the Shurflo pump rep. My original pumps were still working after 8 years, but I put our new pumps in. I used the Shurflo Aqua King standard 3.0gpm for fresh water and...

    Added Large High Flow Blower to Generator Area

    I did consider a 110v blower. I just felt more at ease using a low voltage unit. I had the extra 12v breaker on the panel right above the other blower switch. Im pumping air out of the space thru the transom. air comes in thru the 2 factory vents by the transom door and all the other openings...

    Added Large High Flow Blower to Generator Area

    I have added a continuous duty high flow 12 volt blower to my generator compartment. This helps to prevent The Gen set from vapor locking. It will also allow the area to get more dry fresh air to prevent corrosion. This thing really moves some air.

    Reading lights 330 Express

    Yes I used those wires. You dont need heavy gauge wire with LED. I just worked carefully and managed.

    Reading lights 330 Express

    I did not remove the piece of wood. I just removed the old lights and put the new ones in the same place.

    Adding a raw water washdown and live well to my 2009 Grady White 226 Seafarer

    I’m the Shurflo Rep. In 1994 I came up with the idea of the extra port at the base of the livewell pump. We patented it and now license other companies to use it. You only need 1 seacock with the dual port. Shurflo sells Grady all theur livewell pumpS. We have the Piranha, The Bait Sentry and...

    2005 330 Express Air Conditioning Replacement

    I sold marine AC for years. We alway recommended trying to duct the return somehow. Otherwise you will be pulling air from all the closed off areas behind the hull liner. Yuck.
