Your installing it permanently I assume and not laying it on deck
Your going to need a thru hull
with strainer, and a way to power it of course, wire and circuit breaker and a thru hull
for the brine discharge.
I know nothing about the Rainman, but if your doing an install, donít get in a hurry, there is a lot to installing a water
maker and if you work
at it and get it right, you will lose very little if any storage
The HP pump
will be loud, best if itís not within your living space, and any plumbing
and the membranes etc ought not be installed where a leak will be bad, like no hoses above your electronics
. The pre filters need to be easily accessible and again nothing under them that will be hurt when you spill some water
changing filters. Your going to have to mount a charcoal water filter for fresh water flushes, and of course figure a way to connect it to your water tank, and run a bypass then somewhere until you test the water, I ran mine to our shower sump
When you mount the HP pump
, try to mount it to something very solid, something that wonít magnify the vibrations which will make it noisier.
Spend a day or so dry fitting everything, I spent at least a week, the panels
were my biggest challenge finding a place they would fit wasnít easy. I went through several different plans until I got it right, but be darn sure before you start cutting holes.
Again I know nothing of the Rainman, that was just generic statements
