Not much mess to it, even if you are super detailed about it. Its one of the easiest improvements to make!
That's exactly right. Our frigoboat keel cooler
was just slightly more complicated. We added the keel cooler
portion, which required a new hole in the boat
; we also had to bend the evaporator just right, which required some ad hoc tooling.
After that it was just running the two refrigerant lines (very very carefully as to not kink) and the thermostat wiring
, and the control panel wiring
- all of which were bundled.
Power used the same wire as the old system.
