    Hunter 410 refrigerator

    Don, did that about 10 years for same reasons. Closed up the spillover hole and installed the smallest AB evaporator plate that would fit in the side wall of the fridg and hung the compressor in the wet locker adjacent to the fridg. Left the existing unit in the freezer. Works great, but you...

    Companionway Hatch Leak

    I know when a wash the cockpit and rinse off the hatch I will find water below. I believe it is a result of water flowing over the edge of the hatch that is in the aluminum channel as a result of coefficient of friction.

    In our 2000 420 the electrical panel was made by Ultra Panel, 305-888-7109. Suspect yours was too.

    Electrial Question

    Don and Senang, that is true but at 11.7. It then continues to try to restart. It is not good for the batteries nor the fridge and freezer.

    Electrial Question

    We run our fridg and freezer 247. When we loose shore power from a storm or something our batteries are not being recharged by the charger and if the power is off for a prolonged time the batteries die due to the draw from the fridg and freezer. I am looking for away to prevent this. I want to...

    The Curse of the Red Button

    Art, great idea By a Xmas tree drill are you referring to a tapered drill as used in countersinking wood screw as a pilot hole and then finishing off with correct size for the button? If not, a procedure with picture or pictures of the drill bit would be helpful. Thanks

    Dang-blasted cooling pump for fridge!

    We also have a 2000 420. When we got it new it came from the factory with a fresh water cooled fridg. It was nothing but trouble. The small 12v dc pump would always burn out due to sediment buildup in the water line leading to the compressor. Finally got feed up and replaced the compressor with...
