View the latest post AC Passport I/O Control operation

Hi y''all, having trouble with the display to operate the AC. I have a 366 Carver MY. The system was working fine on heat a few weeks ago (Canada eh!) and when I tried to operate in AC it just won't respond. Lowering the temp does not kick in the cool air. I reviewed the Passport I/O manual and tried program mode but instead of "P" coming up, I get a "U". No where in the manual is "U" discussed. If I press on some more a code "A26" comes up which also is not in the manual. Does anyone have any experience or advice on this problem? thanx.

View the latest post Old Santa Cruze Owner

That's right. The boat is old and so am I. Too bad I have just found this site as I am coming to the end of my boating days. I bought the '78-'79 25ft. flybridge on lake Mead in 1990 with 150 hrs. on the motor. It now has about 1000 hrs. on it, has new heads w/hardened valves. and runs great. But I am not running as well.
The thought of putting this boat up for sale brings a tear to my eye as I have trailed it and boated all over the country with many memories. It's triple axle aluminum trailer handles it easily.

I have no clue as to how much to charge. To replace a boat like this is impossible. And similar boats are costly. I have added many items like 2 25 gallon fuel tanks which gives it a range of about 250 miles at 25 to 30 MPH. I need some advice as to pricing and sales.
Thanks everyone.

Hello Fellow Carver Owners,
I have a 1999 530 Carver Voyager Pilothouse that needs new blinds. I called Carver and was given a number that is no longer in service. Has anyone ever replaced their salon mini blinds and if so, where did you find them? Thanks

View the latest post Raymarine E120's and a DSM 300 Connection

I have a two display system of E 120's that I am connecting to a transducer that came with my 405. I have an uninstalled DSM 300 for the connection. I am looking to identify the cables I will need to power up the DSM, and any cable / connect switch that I will need to run from the DSM to the E120's. I am told that once these connections are made its plug and play. Any information is appreciated.

View the latest post DC to DC charger for thruster

I would like to charge the thruster battery from the windlass wiring while underway but don't want any chance of back feed to the windlass when it is operated.That is the general idea of it, I am trying to avoid running giant cables all over.

I have seen something called a dc to dc charger....anyone know how they work ? Will an ACR like something from Blue seas work for this ?

I can charge it from the house charger one leg with a cable, but I think underway is the way to go....opinions??

View the latest post Hot Water Tank vs tankless heater

Hey All,

I think my hot water tank has come to the end of its service life. Considering replacing my 11 gal tank with one of those inline tankless heaters. Has anyone done it? the tankless ones seem to be cheaper and would THINK they are more efficient?

Just wondering if anyone has done it and had any thoughts/advise?

View the latest post Horrendous Odor

We have an absolutely awful stench coming from god knows where.
Hoping someone here can give us some guidance.
Here is what we know and suspect.

The aft bilge (not the engine bay) had some standing water that seemed to be the source of the smell. Hosed it out and scrubbed it using some bilge cleaner. Smell still there.
The engine bay seems to be seperate and not connected to the bilge area of the cabin. Engine bay bilge smells fine.

The toilet is the pump style with electric assist. We think the seal at the bottom of the bowl must not be sealing properly since water does not stays in the bowl. Or perhaps the tank and hoses may be due to be replaced?

The smell is just about everywhere but seems to be the absolute worst under the v-berth. When you open the access door you almost want to pass out.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

View the latest post Kohler Gas Generator

Purchased our 2001 350 Mariner in September of last year and we love it. This weekend the Kohler gas generator started and ran for about a minute then quit and wouldn’t start again. After some diagnoses I discovered that it is not getting gas. I can only assume that the fuel pump or electric fuel valve are the cause. Since they appear to be original I have decided to replace both and have ordered the pump but can’s seem to find the Parker Skinner valve. Does anyone have an idea where i can find this?

By the way the generator has ran all year with no issues. Thank you in advance with any assistance.
