We have a 2001 530 Voyager (new to us). It has Webasto marine heat and air unit in the salon that keeps shutting down. Has a fault code of E1 (compressor high pressure protection). We cleaned the strainer, but it runs for a short while then shuts down. Any suggestions?

View the latest post Attachment(s) Indoor Disposable Boat Cover
Saw another boat with this in the storage dome so I thought why not. This plastic is designed for overspray for car painting/masking. Comes in a 400' x 16' rolls, weighs almost nothing and I would say similar to what the laundry places puts over your cleaned clothes. Total weight of plastic I used was probably less than a pound. I needed to use 2 pieces as 16' was not wide enough to do my boat which was a piece of cake to do. Definitely want 2 people to do this as the slightest breeze will float everything quite easily. Just a few pieces of painters masking tape to hold the pieces together and secure it to the boat. Can most likely do the boat 7 times with the roll so about $8.50 in material costs. https://www.amazon.ca/3M-06728-Overspray-Protective-Sheeting/dp/B000SMY1DW
Meant for dust/dirt, general protection. This cannot be used outdoors as it would rip apart in no time. Allows me to bring home all my canvas to wash, treat without needing to run back to the marina to put everything back on which will get dirty/dusty over the winter.
Crappy picture but this gives you an idea.

My starboard cummings engine does not want to run very much. It's strange because it will shut off on it's own. The tach seems to jump all over the place (I've even seen it go backwards past zero rpms while the engine is still running. The sync gauge (which has never worked) is doing a dance also.
Another clue is sometimes when I try to start the engine, the low oil pressure alarm does not sound. If the alarm does sound, the engine will start but like I said the tach swings all over even though the engine sounds to be running at a constant RPM. I observed that the hour meter for this engine seems to not be counting the hours correctly either.
Does anyone know how I can get ahold of Carver to see if they have a engine and helm wiring diagram for my 2000 Carver 406?
Any advise would be highly appreciated.

View the latest post Attachment(s) Refrigerator replacement
I know we have been here a few times, but I am ready to replace the original 1994 Norcold 110V/12V fridge. A little rust, works good, but I am sure it is getting tired. I have seen many models, Norcold, isotherm, Vetrigo. After pulling mine out today I have an idea of what would fit. I can also remove the cubby on top for another 8" verticle clearance. What do you all have and was there any modifications needed? 1994 390 CPMY, Attached is the view behind the fridge. The Norcold has it's deepest point at the bottpm, so these wires dont interfere with placement. However from what I saw they would with the Vetrigo.

View the latest post Attachment(s) Winterizing City Water Hookup Section
This little section of line has always bothered me since there is a check valve in here so the only way to get pink stuff in this line is by using some sort of pump to force open the check valve/pressure regulator. Used a drill pump for many years but they are so cheap they last only a few years at best and are a pita to prime. Had problems this year until it dawned on me. When I have my wash down pump hooked up to the pink stuff and in the process of filling the lines, simply hook up a short length of garden hose from the wash down outlet to the city inlet and pump a bit in with any tap open to fill that small section of line. So simple but my god it took me 20 years to think that one up. This is going to be my new method from now on. My rear wash down happens to be about 3 feet from My city inlet which makes it a breeze on the 41CMY.
Boat is all winterized now and in hibernation state until next spring.

View the latest post Attachment(s) Raw Water pump
2 moths ago I replaced both raw water pumps (Gen V Merc 7.4 Carb) they have teh fuel pump mounted on top with new units. The starboard pumped “Ok” (No over heating) Port pumped a lot! Boat has sat for 5 weeks, and I was getting ready to run it up the river for storage. Port started and pumped fine. Starboard started and would NOT pump water! I took off hoses and primed, filled heat exchanger with raw water, noting at all. A real chore removing this one, but tomorrow out it comes and a rebuild kit goes in. Just disappointed that a new pump (came assembled) just quit pumping. OK, done with the rant!
