Raymarine device attached to water heater--what is it?

Our 1997 Bavaria 46E is relatively new to us. While repairing a leak in a water line by our water heater, I noticed this (see photos) mounted on the end of the water heater. It appears to be measuring something (water temp?) related to either the temperature of the coolant in the heat exchanger or the fresh water?

I haven't found anything on the Raymarine web site that might explain it.

That actually looks like a suncover for an ST60 instrument that has been re-purposed.

i think you are correct,possibly used as a drip cover to protect the wiring on the heater/thermostat where it exits the water heater.

Re: Raymarine device attached to water heater--what is it?

Is it just me or is there an even remotely good reason why this gentleman would not take off the cover and then post a photo of what's exposed - if indeed it was still necessary to do so. To post such a picture only invites wild arse guessing.


Is this really necessary? Really? As for me, this seems a waste of bandwidth for those who just won't do their due diligence before imposing on forum time and talent. Sorry.

"Imposing on forum time and talent... "
Ah, well wouldn't want to impose.

it is a case of nothing ventured nothing gained,as for wasting time and talent ,just keeping the grey matter moving for some is an achievement!

on the positive note i now know what to do with all those sun covers sitting in my chart table taking up space for years......nut and crisp bowls for my next happy hour drinks party onboard ,the wife can now keep them in the galley tupperware locker

The Number of posts by the OP here suggests a lack of experience on the DIYer.
It is why we all are here, right?
So, better to ask than not? Yes, of course it is.
Feel free NOT to answer silly queries if you want, that IS a waste of bandwidth.

Cheers,

Raymarine wasn't Raymarine in 1997. Calif. Ted is probably right. Pretty cheesy though.

+1 if you think a post or thread is "useless" only proper response is to ignore it.

Going to the effort of disparaging others, especially noobies, without actually trying to increase our collective wisdom IMO is just evil.

I would never remove something bolted to an engine without first knowing what it was... hence trying to figure out what is was is appropriate...

Re: Raymarine device attached to water heater--what is it?

I think CalifTed has it/. repurposed sun cover for possibly the wiring of the AC side of the heater. Take the cover off and see.

anyone giving you the business for posting are just being assholes behind the internet veil. They probably also do work for the sex trade as young women looking for money while being old dudes with nothing better to do.
