Just one note on the AC/outlets/charger question. Turning on the main AC breaker won't necessarily send power to the outlets or the batter charger if those items have their own breakers. Our panel is set up that way, so we have to flip on the charger and the outlets if we want power to them, after turning on the general AC breaker. The charger was sneaky, because that breaker was simply labeled "Accessories"

The Head:
In addition to the possible valve issues mentioned by others, if your set up is like mine, you also might have a full holding tank/bladder. It is a 10 gallon rubber bag under a panel in your starboard/only lazzarette. If that big rubber bag is full it is gonna "push back". Pump her out and see if the problem persists.

The Sink: It exits via a T/H port side, the TH is found under the port settee rear section. Consider bio-degradable or eco-friendly dish and hand washing soap instead of Joy/Dawn/et al and the fish will love your left overs.

Charger/Batteries: Mine has an upgraded and reloacted elec. panel. So not sure if my switches match yours. I have an AC main switch, a Bat. Charger switch, and and "outlets" switch (and a water heater switch: runs off AC only). I leave all 3 (4) on 24/7 while hooked to shore power. Interior lights still run off the 12VDC circuits/battery so u need to keep the charger on to keep batteries topped up.

Love this boat. Congrats and I hope you live aboard as happy on yours as I do on mine.
