Wow, those new Jeanneaus must be pretty darn efficient. If I go sailing and run all the nav/radio equip, etc, I have to recharge every 24 hrs. I might get away with 48 hrs if I'm very frugal with power and don't sail. I only have 400amp house bank, however.

How much water can you make in an hour? The OP might also benefit from understand the care and maintenance responsibilities for for watermaker and the "use it or lose it" concept too.

Jeanneau 54DS

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
