Thanks for the replies. Rep points on the way. (Yes this could almost fit into that other thread.)

I'm planning to test using the connections that are right near the blower. I'll report back what I find out.

Asking Beneteau - great idea.

The off-delay timer would be a great idea. A relay and a 555 timer would do the job. I know just how to do it so there would be zero battery drain when the blower switches off. And maybe a switch to set normal operation versus delay, for those times when we are below.

This will probably be post-launch, since there'S so much else to do.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
