The unit we had was controlled by the Geni control box
. If that box dies you are SOL. The boat
was new to the owners and they knew nothing about the installation
. Initially the unit would run but pump
no raw water
through the cooling
system. Could not get much help from Ample Power
troubleshooting this. We never could track down the exact reason for the lack of cooling water
but re-connecting a loose wire got it going. If you can't figure out why something doesn't work
properly after studying the wiring
diagram provided by the vendor, and studying the unit, I'd say it was too complicated to be onboard. Very frustrating when you have to guess at what might be causing the problem.
