REMOVAL OF RADAR ARCH -CARVER 320

Postby armincate » November 13th, 2018, 2:26 pm

Can anyone tell me how to remove the radar arch on my 1996 Carver Voyager 320? How hard is it and how many hours are involved?

I have no idea, but when we bought our projectm, we had to take ours down to get under bridges.
The big surprise was the weight of the thing. It was just my wife me.
Get help if you do it yourself.
Thanks

I have a 320 Voyager as well, thought of taking it off as easier to strip and repaint, but I have the same question as you regarding pain vs. gain. Good Luck!

Look for access ports or panels that can be removed close to the bases of the arch. There should be 3 or 4 bolts on each base. Cut out any caulking around the joint before you start unbolting. Depending on what you have fastened to the arch in terms of wired accessories will dictate what has to be disconnected or cut before the arch can be removed such as wiring for lights, radar, antennas, etc. I wouldn't cut a radar cable, and while you can cut coax cables and mend them with a coupler, every connection you introduce increases signal loss.
