    2004 Hunter 33 high temp alarm

    Ouch! In 2019 I paid $713, including tax, from Deatons in Oriental. I don't have the part number.

    2004 Hunter 33 high temp alarm

    Yanmar would not help with my 2005 in 2019, as expected - too much time had passed and I am the second owner. Most of the previous years the boat was kept in a lake by the original owner, so they didn't notice the problem. For me, it ran fine at 2400 RPM (tested for an hour), but overheated...

    Hunter 33-2 wire chase from aft cabin to panel?

    I have two panels now. I attached the first with velcro. I stuck one side of the velcro to the panel and sewed the other side to the bimini. For the second panel, I just tie it on at the four corners. Its a lot easier to get on and off and I usually take it off when I leave the boat. I can't...

    Hunter 33 - batteries

    My first one from several years ago is velcro'ed to the top of the rear bimini. I sewed one side of adhesive backed velcro on the bimini and stuck the other to the back of the panel. It holds very well but is a slight pain to get off for one person (we had a lot of weather/storm prep last year)...

    Hunter 33 - batteries

    Congratulations on your new Hunter! I also own a 2005 Hunter 33. Last year I took out my start battery and group 27 house battery and replaced them with two true deep cycle, 105 amp hour, group 31, batteries for my house bank. Looks like your PO did the same thing. However I did buy a portable...

    Fresh water manifold

    Try pulling the ring back towards/into the connector to release its hold and then slide the connector off the pex pipe - at the same time. I've not seen those exact connectors before, but I've done it with other types that look similar.

    Adding a new battery

    Hi Greg. Yes I wired them as one bank. I have nothing on #2 bank now. I also have solar panels wired into that bank.

    Adding a new battery

    I recently went through the analysis for upgrading my house bank on my 05 Hunter 33. My first choice was the 6v golf cart batteries, but after much time measuring, I concluded that the height was just too tight to fit safely. In the end I installed two size 31 true deep cycle batteries for the...

    Tank Monitor

    I would pull it out and see what type of sending unit you have to start with. If its a traditional ohm based, then you can measure the resistance at various positions to see if its working. The one in my 2005 Hunter 33 was not the ohm type. Here is my experience and solution: 6 wire fuel...

    H33 battery upgrade

    I recently evaluated options for upgrading my battery bank on my 05 Hunter 33. I really wanted to put in Trojan 6v golf cart batteries for their capacity and longevity, but they are just too tall for the existing compartment and I couldn't figure out how to make it work. Instead I installed...

    Hunter fuel monitor

    I never saw the green and red LEDs lit on the fuel sending unit in my case. They look like they are lit in the photo, but they really are not. It must be from the flash or the sun. -buddy

    Hunter fuel monitor

    I think this is what I have on my 2005 Hunter 33. Here is my thread and solution: https://forums.sailboatowners.com/threads/6-wire-fuel-sending-unit-what-is-this.197164/ In summary I replaced the sending unit with a common resistance based sensor and soldered a 510 ohm resistor between the...

    Polar Bay AC control panel programming to shut off fan

    Agreed, I want to change it for the winter / heat mode. That worked! P-14 was the same on my Polar Bay. Thanks a million. -buddy

    Polar Bay AC control panel programming to shut off fan

    Thanks! That might work. I'll check when I'm back to the boat to see if the settings seem to line up. Just knowing that the value is "con" for the continuous fan might be enough to pinpoint the right program number, even if the numbers aren't exactly the same. P-14 - Continuous Fan or Cycle Fan...

    Polar Bay AC control panel programming to shut off fan

    Thanks. I'll circle through the program settings again and see if I can figure out which one is for the fan. The problem is that the settings are just numbered, not named, and I don't have the key/manual. I think the fan is already on "auto" since it changes speeds up and down at various times...
