Hello All

I'm just hear seeking good sailing information. I purchased a new Beneteau 34 a couple of years ago, and the dealer is much too expensive for me to call since the warranty is out... So I've become the "DIY're" to keep cost down and sailing time up.

My first query was about my cruisair A/C not cooling (Here on the Texas-Gulf Coast with temps soaring in the triple-digits most of the summer it's very important). I recall last Summer year I had a similar issue and the dealer hit me with @ $75 for 30 minutes just to flush it out. I found an interesting doc on "Back-Flushing" the A/C here and I plan to try that this weekend. Of course the A/C has a wonderful wiring diagram, but no diagram about the plumbing...

Wish me luck.
CT.

Re: Hello all

Welcome Aboard CF from another Tx. Gulf Coast boat.

Sorry can't help with the A/C, I just use window A/C's in my 2 big deck hatches. $125 each
