Carver 504 Forward Head Hoses

Postby samcrouse » May 3rd, 2018, 6:26 pm

I have a 1999 Carver 504 and want to replace the forward head hoses. Previous owner wrapped some of them in aluminum foil to cover up stench. They are visible to the left just as you enter the engine room compartment (under the stairs).
Anyone have any experience with this or know what is involved? Thanks in advance for any tips or leads.... Sam

I've done it on several vessels but not your model. The hardest part is routing through an area you can't access without some major dismantling if that's the case in yours. It's perfectly okay to cut access holes in areas not normally seen then cover them when complete. Use a good quality hose or you may be doing this again a few years from now. Remember the more flexible the hose, the quicker it will permeate if standing waste is left in any section of it.

What kind of system/toilet do you have, Vacuflush?
