New owner Mahe 36

Newby here. Just bought my next dream boat. 2007 Mahe. Live in the NW Corner of Washington state and One World should be here early June.
Maiden voyage was from Grenada to Palm beach, FL.
It pointed out several... quirks and since the manual is of little help, I turn to other owners for some help.
1. European Duo version so wired for 230vac 50hz and need to change to US 120vac 60hz.
-any thoughts on the shore power panel (there doesn't seem to be one)
-boat has separate charger and inverter. Charger is smart and can handle the power change but the inverter not so.

Has anyone done this?

2. Had some minor glass work done inside both engine wells and now neither the fresh water gauge nor the voltage gauge work.
Coincidence? Or do the wires to both happen to run through the wells?

3. How do you depower the 12vdc panel?
I threw the two master switches counterclockwise in the port engine bay and thought that would do it.. NOPE.

4. How do you contact FP Customer service? My emails seen to be ignored.
I dearly like the boat, even coming from a performance trimaran background, and accept the challenge of #1 above but...perhaps I'll try French next time.

Best regards to my new community.

The Fountaine Pajot Mahe 36 is very well documented here on the CF.
Just save this link to the multiple pages of great Mahe 36 information.

Is it possible to search topics? I enjoy browsing but it is pretty time consuming.
