Hoping to get some advice from those onboard.
We have a 10 year old Isotherm
that basically is now a straight Danfoss cold plate water
cooled system. As isotherm
stuff stopped working we ripped those items out. No thermostat. We use a 12v 10 stage timer. Run times are based on water
temp / air temp. Water cooled using our fresh water tanks
which lay against the hull
. Tank water is the same temp as sea water.
While doing a 600 mile up uphill bash we were heeled over the whole trip on one tack. The longest continuous run time is about 5 hours. It was during this time that the unit would stop for 5 seconds then start again. Run for 4-5 minutes then stop/start again. We noticed it only during this longer run time. Inside cabin
temp 90+. Water temp 86 degrees.
Now that we have arrived in Ecuador
and flat the unit runs perfectly.
The feed wire is 8 gauge and the voltage drop is 2%. I checked the fuse holder and the wire buss and all seemed good. I thought it might be a loose wire connection but that did not show up when I started looking.
Question. . . . Does the Danfoss BD50 have trouble running at a steep angle? Because I have had not issues with it before or now. BTW voltage was 13.2 during the times it was stopping.
Comments and suggestions are appreciated.
