We just wrapped up a Brownie's YP35 install. Some ideas:
- Pull air from up on deck as suggested or from inside the boat
. If you have AirCon (or even a cool cabin) you'll get a lot more efficiency out of the compressor
. Hot humid air is hard work
for the compressor. Also the house is likely to have the proper protection to ensure quality air (CO alarms, etc). Whatever you do, don't pull air from the engine room.
- Set up a blower to keep the electric motor
cool (or use the auxiliary's blower). In an enclosed area the compressor is going to get hot and lose efficiency and lifespan without a blower.
Fill idea sounds good, that's what we did as well.
- You should check the condensate drain issues with your selected compressor. Many require you to drain every 15 minutes or so (in the middle of a fill). You may be in the engine room often unless you go with a self draining system.
