You're about to be impolite . Let us just say, I had to decipher the boat by more and manhandle at least one lever.

aha! the old, "hmm why didnt I see that before" routine........
Ive just been through it today with low power to an appliance, and it worked brilliantly as soon as 3 hours passed and I put the neutral in the right place in the fuse panel........

Re: New to me boat

weavis understood; I used the lever marked open/close in the bilge area... Seemed to work last night, but I must still have an issue, as my coffee tasted awfully salty, so complete verdict is still out :-/


Cheers.

The only reason I ask how folks figure things out is to learn as much as I can and try to fix things myself. I do understand about the "too many moving parts" problems with some of my projects. Sometimes I have to learn the very hardest way before it sinks in. Hopefully that's not true in your case. Us old sailors like our coffee salty.

I wouldn't even consider messing around if my water pump somehow ran for days without stopping I would just get a new one and move on. Even if the old one somehow works now, it would soon when you what it to.
