    There appears to be a check valve at the exit of the hot water tank. Is that only there to make the bypass work or is there another purpose? My trailer HW heater has two bypass valves and no check valve as far as I know.

    Refrigeration systems?

    Thanks! The compressor seems to be set up to cycle to keep the plate between -5 and zero degrees C. Wondering if there is any possibility of creating a freezer compartment using this system.

    Refrigeration systems?

    Does anyone recognize this evaporator installed in my 1995 Hunter 33.5? Is it a fluid filled evaporator?

    That seems right. Thanks! They certainly are pricey.

    I have this grey piping in the boat for fresh water. Is this particularly a marine product or is it residential, like pex? Where can I find parts for this?

    Network Power Connection- SeaTlkng

    Thanks... I did figure it out and it was actually simpler than I thought. Once I get the chartplotter to follow a route I simply set the autohelm to AUTO and then press TRACK and the autohelm follows the route instead of the magnetic heading. There does seem to be a bit of a conflict when I...

    Network Power Connection- SeaTlkng

    I went ahead and cut the red wire in the three conductor SeaTalk cable going to my ST4000+ control unit. Everything appears to work fine, I can get network info on the AP and I can now navigate on wind vane info. I still haven't figured out how to navigate on the chart plotter route. I also...

    Network Power Connection- SeaTlkng

    There are two connections from the St4000+ control head to the motor.

    Network Power Connection- SeaTlkng

    I think you’re right on that. Makes sense. I have three connections on that cable. I’m guessing 1) power 2) ground 3) data.

    Network Power Connection- SeaTlkng

    I don’t think that this would necessarily solve the problem. In case of excessive current one fuse might blow but power would still be present from the other source until/if that fuse blew as

    Network Power Connection- SeaTlkng

    The ST4000+ control head only has one power connection that I can see. Not clear how I can separate the circuits without cutting a wire in the SeaTlkng bus cable.

    Network Power Connection- SeaTlkng

    My auto helm ST4000+ has its own power feed and circuit breaker. My other instruments have a separate power circuit with breaker. I am currently installing a network connection between the autohelm (SeaTalk) and the other instruments (SeaTlkng). This involves using an interface kit. When I hook...

    Main sheet rigging - H33.5

    Definitely the dodger has been updated but I don’t know about the main sheet tackle. I have three clutches on each side which are all used: outhaul, topping lift, first reef, second reef, main halyard, jib halyard,

    Main sheet rigging - H33.5

    Sail…. And yes my main sheet is arranged like in the picture. Actually my thought was to leave blocks in the current location ( due to mechanical advantage considerations) and run the end of the sheet back to a turning block at the mast step.

    Main sheet rigging - H33.5

    Your number two option is one that I was considering and would like to see examples of how it is implemented on the H33.5. Item of concern is interference with the boom vang.
