    Question about head

    If people would read ALL these threads frequently, you would know those rods are failure-prone in due time. Same with the macerator... if you don't run water through to flush them out, the dirt will solidify and jam the impeller. Then people want to blame that cheapo pump brand.

    Best way to drill a 2 5/16 hole adjacent to the breaker panel?

    Freezing fridge in Beneteau 323

    My 2006 323 you can't miss the thermo- it's on the front wall of the fridge. If you let things lay against the cold plate, they WILL FREEZE, like overnight. I assume yours has a shelf, and it should be okay to stand up bottles and cans.

    Lazy Jacks

In the OEM holes in the spreaders, I put twisted D shckles and ran the LJs through those to take some load off the spreaders.

    Water Pump Not Priming

    From the original post, when you shut off the accumulator, do you epen a faucet to let air out. Sounds to me like the accumulator had alreay pressurized the pump output with air, and awater can not pass through. The accumulator is back-pressurizing the pump?y 2 cents.

    I saw it this afternoon - Wednesday. Big screen for sure. It was GREAT. I got more than misty-eyed during some of it- especially the ending. This may be the last week in the theaters here, so don't put off seeing it.
